Stopped Rotation Piror to the shift, the Earth slows in its rotation, and actually stops. This is recorded in written history and spoken folklore, worldwide, as a long day or night.

Aww... we're just havin a little fun here...
Besides, the escape velocity is much higher then the speed from which we are rotating at the equator. Humans would be tossed at 1.5 the speed of sound, but we would certainly not fly off the earth, much less France.
......... the sound will increase in size, giving better
access to the Pacific for good ocean fishing.

Well maybe France would slide some miles to the East then... hang on, yes eastm the sun rises in the east. I want France to go somewhere I was hoping for space but....
The West Coast of the US in general will suffer an onslaught of changes during the Pole Shift, and those living there need to consider not only each and every onslaught, but the combined effect. First, because the Pacific will shorten and subducting plates will be forced under the coastal plate suddenly and forcefully, heating of the superstrata will occur to an astonishing degree.
But the highlands, which Arkansas has in abundance, will be above the floodwaters and have another advantage. Where many areas will find themselves faced with hordes of hungry migrants, forced from their homes by rising water, the highlands of Arkansas are isolated from large population centers, and thus will escape this squeeze.
