    I heard about that last night on Coast to Coast. What do you think? Does it seem plausable?

    I have no idea. I don't really know enough about this subject to have an opinion.

    about 12,000 years ago, global sea levels seem to have been 70m lower than today (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Post-Glacial_Sea_Level.png), so if the 'island' is now 60m below the surface its plausible that it could have been devestated by a tsunami and subsidence at that time. Unfortunately I can't view the full article without paying, so I can't comment further.
