WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A new volcanic island has risen from the South Pacific near Tonga, according to reports from two vessels that passed the area.
The crew of the Maiken, a yacht that left the northern Tongan islands group of Vava’u in August, reported on their Web log on August 12 that they saw streaks of light, porous pumice stone floating in the water — then “sailed into a vast, many-miles-wide belt of densely packed pumice.”
This is it, people—the stars are right! As predicted in The Necronomicon, R’lyeh has risen and soon dread Cthulhu will lay waste to the earth. Your only hope is to be eaten first! Pray to be consumed quickly by the Bloated One and his hideous spawn! Ia! Ia! Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!
