Due to the stretch of the Atlantic in the week prior to the shift, the major cities in the industrial triangle of North Carolina will find themselves pulled down into what will seem like a steady flood tide coming up over their toes and potentially over their roof tops. The advice to be 100 miles inland and 200 feet above sea level does not apply along the southern portion of the Eastern Seaboard of the US, where we advise being 1,000 feet above sea level. Where the land rises sharply from the Atlantic, there is also little land to buffer against sloshing, so the press of water can add to this altered sea level to wash desperate and shocked residents off their roofs and into a tide that will go back out to sea when the Atlantic Rift rips, releasing tension and allowing the land along the coastlines to bob back up. Nevertheless, the land drop in this area is expected to be 150 feet below where it is today, and when combined with the 650-700 feet in elevation that the melting poles will put under water for some hundreds of years, one must be at an elevation of 800 feet or more to expect land under their feet in the Aftertime. The Appalachian mountains afford relief, but in the North Carolina area will be the site of polarized battles between those who would rule as kings and the residents they would have as serfs for their new kingdoms. Our advice, stay away from wealthy enclaves and keep a low profile.
