On September 20, 2021, Scientific Reports Journal announced, “A Tunguska-sized airburst destroyed Tall el-Hammam, a Middle Bronze Age city in the Jordan Valley near the Dead Sea,” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-021-97778-3.
Archeologists Dr. Steven Collins and Dr. Gary Byers have supervised the excavation at Tall el-Hammam for over 15 years. They believe the site is the ancient city of Sodom, as described in Genesis 19:24–29. Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven, and He overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. But his wife, from behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Now Abraham arose early in the morning and went to the place where he had stood before the Lord; and he looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the valley, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land ascended like the smoke of a furnace. Thus, it came about, when God destroyed the cities of the valley, that God remembered Abraham and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow when He overthrew the cities in which Lot lived.
