During the 1811-1812 earthquake series, the earth belched out immense quantities of sand from unusual gaping fissures in the ground. These ‘sand blows’ blasted a mixture of sand and water as much as 100 feet into the air and buried some areas under 20 feet of sand in just hours. The Book of Mormon speaks of “earth being carried up upon the city” and of many cities being “covered with earth” which again matches, startlingly, the effects of the 1811-1812 earthquakes. It could also account for the Book of Mormon description claiming that “waters have I cause to come up” from the earth. Neither of these descriptions is a normal effect of volcanic eruptions, which again were never mentioned in the Book of Mormon.
