From time immemorial, the Atlantic Ridge, from Iceland to South America, has been
an area of considerable seismic activity. Volcanic eruptions and earthquakes are
nothing extraordinary.

The Atlantic Ocean – Catastrophes:

In 1669, a major part of the notorious pirate island Port Royal sank due to an disastrous

In 1775, Lisbon, which is on a parallel with the Azores at a latitude of 39 43'/36 55' N,
was badly hit by a devastating earthquake killing 60 000 people. Moreover, both the
harbour and the docks sank 200 metres to the ground.

In 1783, one fifth of the Icelandic population fell victim to a catastrophic earthquake.

In 1811, on the Azores, a volcanic island named “Sambrina“ rose some thousand metres
to the surface and sank again shortly after. The islands of Corvi and Flores constantly
change their shape and parts of them are swallowed up by the sea.

To the best of present knowledge there is an underwater area with deep valleys and
high mountains around the Azores and the Canary Islands. Reducing the sea level by
150 metres to the Ice Age level brings about a huge piece of land which, however,
does not match the dimensions Plato wrote about.

Nevertheless, further westward, in the Caribbean area, a huge land mass comes into
existence which perfectly meets Platos records.
