Great news for the coral though!
A huge raft of volcanic rock has been spotted in the Pacific Ocean, and the Manhattan-size mass appears to be drifting slowly toward Australia....All of the material is believed to have come from the eruption of an underwater volcano near the island nation of Tonga in early August.
