Incredibly, 3,000 square miles of land sank or subsided following the massive shocks, in some places by 10 feet elevation. Enormous amounts of water poured in from the Mississippi River, forming a lake or ‘sea’ in Hebrew terms, in just a few hours. This body of water still exists today, and is known as Realfoot Lake. 10 other lakes or sea’s also formed during the 1811-1812 earthquake sequence. Any villages in such an area would have matched perfectly the description of “sunk in the depths of the sea” by Book of Mormon prophets. The documentary is available from the bookstore at www.BookofMormonEvidence.org .
