Lawrence Earl from Black Star Walcheren's People Refused to Leave Their Homes, Saying, "The Lord Made the Waters Rise and He Will Make Them Fall", Whole towns were submerged. Wherever salt touched the land, it was ruined. Sodium upsets the normal ratiobetween itand calcium, forcing the ground to "cake."
