A bit close to the coastal tidal waves, which will not be limited by height when they have nowhere else to go. May be a bit wet and unsafe for those not prepared for a washout to sea. Where land bordering the Atlantic must adjust to:
The lowlands of France are in a direct line to this surging of the Atlantic, not buffered, and will pass these great flood tides along to Switzerland, unimpeded. It is the first few ravines this flood tide encounters which experience tidal bore, and these are likely to be in the Alps bordering France, where the inflowing water has not encountered another impediment to its flow. Since the waters of the Mediterranean will also slosh, there can be a clash of water under pressure at the point they are likely to meet, again at the high land of Switzerland. Residents are advised to move inland away from the ravines that could experience tidal bore under these circumstances, into areas where such bores will be countered and blocked and thus diminished in intensity. Switzerland will be well above the waves in the Aftertime, so survivors returning to their homes after the hour of the shift will find themselves positioned to take up ocean fishing on their new island home.
Note the elevation of France. It is not sufficient to evade being flooded
when the sea level rises 675 feet above sea level after the pole shift!
Waves 500-600 feet high could wash from the Atlantic all the way to the
Mediterranean virtually without impediment in southern France. During the
hour of the shift there are several forces which will push water across
France all the way to the foothills of Switzerland. One is the direction
the globe will be moving, moving the Bulge of Brazil up toward the N Pole.
This will push water in the North Atlantic down along the UK directly
toward the northern coast of Spain, where it will encounter high land and
redirect up toward the coast of France. more than the 500-600
foot tides can be expected along the coast of France, as water will be
trapped in a pinch there, and thus forced upward across the land with
greater force and height.
We have specifically stated that this is tidal bore along the Switzerland border with France, not Germany, as Germany will not experience this tide nor the clash of sloshing that is likely to occur with waters from the Mediterranean. If the initial pole shift slosh will create a pinch at the coastline of France, what do you suppose water being forced over southern France from more than one direction would produce? Pressure, which has nowhere to go but up into the mountains of Switzerland. If you wish to get a better understanding of this, make a model for your bathtub and force water from various or dual directions to see what happens.
