It was my understanding that during the now infamous Sumatra tsunami earthquake the sea floor changed seven meters in elevation. While this magnitute
of a quake is rare, the changes in elevation may not be as slow as in matter of inches. Where it would likely happen though is probably at the site
of the oldest mountain ranges now. I think it would be pretty amazing (and tragic) if we were to see some new mountain range creation over the oldest
mountains like the Appalacians. This fault line is not very active now, but if it were to become active again, it would be bad for the US.
