We tend to think that things like geographical features take hundred or even thousands of years to form, like for instance, “Lakes”.
A sudden mysterious appearance of a lake in Africa has stirred up a huge curiosity with the locals and some head scratching with scientist.
The lake appeared seemingly overnight in the middle of a desert in Tunisia. The lake is about a hectare in area and has an average depth of 10 to 18 meters. Due to the lake’s size, people in the area set up a makeshift beach, which locals call “Gafsa Lake”. The lake formed in the middle of a drought and the area receives very little rainfall.
