Zarahemla and Pompei: Volcanoes in the Book of Mormon

In 3 Nephi 8, we can read about the destructions that signaled the death of Jesus Christ, to the Nephites in ancient America. The above awesome video, which is worth a watch for it's own sake,is a recreation of the destruction that took place at Pompei; it can be found at the Museum Victoria website. Is the destruction in 3 Nephi 8 a volcanic one? I will leave that for the reader to decide; read 3 Nephi 8 then watch the video. If it is a volcanic destruction then that is a very strong clue as to where the Book of Mormon takes place.
