CLAIM ELEVEN
  I also claimed that at the time of the Crucifixion
of Christ a great and terrible destruction
occurred in the ancient Americas. Entire
cities were completely destroyed, burned,
buried under mountains, or sunk into the sea !
 
     
3rd Nephi 8:5-11
   

And it came to pass in the thirty and fourth year, in the first month, on the fourth day of the month, there arose a great storm, such an one as never had been known in all the land.

And there was also a great and terrible tempest ; and there was terrible thunder, insomuch that it did shake the whole earth as if it was about to divide asunder.

And there were exceeding sharp lightnings, such as never had been known in all the land.

And the city of Zarahemla did take fire.

And the city of Moroni did sink into the depths
of the sea, and the inhabitants thereof were
drowned.

And the earth was carried up upon the city of
Moronihah that in the place of the city there
became a great mountain.

And there was a great and terrible destruction in the land southward.*
