As part of the New England complex that will benefit from the St. Lawrence Seaway ripping open, Connecticut will have a higher sea level after the shift than it enjoys now. However, leading into the shift, it will be subject to waves from the sloshing Atlantic that will drown the coastline. Residents hoping to find their homes above water after the shift should leave, moving inland for the shift itself, and then returning to the coastline to pick up the pieces. Homes at an elevation of 500 or more feet will be the only ones remaining after the poles melt. However, ocean fishing, an occupation of the residents today, will continue to be a source of food for the survivors, and the climate should, if anything, be milder than today.
