Lake Michigan was now the size of the gulf of Mexico. but still had land on all sides and after this, it would start getting hurricanes formed over it. Indiana had its own coast line due to the increase of lake Michigan's size. California would be elevated by 195 feet.

Mount st Helens would be 1,100 feet taller than it was when it erupted in 1980. Louisiana would grow by 95 miles but Alaska would be completely underwater.
