Lying to the west of the continental divide, Idaho will find itself under some compression during the coming pole shift. Mountain building will occur. Having experienced compression and the push east in the past, the rock strata in Idaho represents what has withstood this compression. Land to the east of the continental divide will be subject to this compression, and land to the west of Idaho will experience the greatest heat from the friction of subducting plates. Idaho will be pushed to the east during the shift, riding over the plains to the east. This ride will terrify its residents, but Idaho will not experience the devastation that earth movements will do to others areas to the east or west.
A guide to safety in the state is to look for recent activity, that which has occurred during the past few thousand years. Vegetation does not reveal this activity, but the age of torn rock does. Geologists in the area can also be tapped, as they know areas that have remained the same for eons, and where the surface is showing freshly torn rock. In these torn areas, prepare to settle in for the ride, that rocky hour, in any area not on the rocky hillsides, but rather on heavy soil which will act as a buffer. Idaho has outlets for heat and spewing lava trapped with the surface outlets the path of least resistance. The many hot springs and inactive caldera will become more active, and residents should maintain a distance from these outlets during the shift itself. High winds and hot dust from volcanoes in nearby states should also be guarded against. Idaho will fare better after the shift, as the climate will be more temperate.
