A new Island has risen out of the Red Sea, and is currently about 500 meters wide, due to the eruption of a volcano off the sea floor.  This coincides with increased volcanic activity in Eritrea and Ethiopia.  Whether the island will endure the action of the waves or not remains to be seen, but the longer the eruption lasts, the better the chances.  It only broke the surface on December 23rd, so it's growth so far seems positive for permanence.
