Safe Locations :DD:
Czechoslovakia is a land-bound country which will find itself criss-crossed by frantic survivors who are seeking a better life elsewhere after the shift. Those in the lowlands in what is now the north will travel south to the mountains as the poles melt and the oceans steadily inundate.
Boats will wash up on what will become the shores of Czechoslovakia. Those to what is now the south will likewise migrate, seeking escape from the gloom that volcanic ash imposes on the landscape. They will all be looking for a better spot, and none will be available. Meeting in Czechoslovakia, and learning that all other directions are just as hopeless as the one they came from, there is likely to be despondency and a sense of hopelessness.
Survivors are advised to prepare for this emotional climate with clear-cut instructions to newcomers on how life in survivor settlements proceeds. Thus led like children, the newcomers may adjust and become good neighbors.
As the largest city in the area, serving as the intellectual and emotional heart of the area with many arteries leading into the countryside, Prague will both benefit and suffer during the coming pole shift. Those in the city will have many connections to the countryside, and not hesitate to use them when starvation sets in.
Those in the country will look for leadership from Prague, which of course will not have answers to the crisis anymore than the country folk. However, there is likely among those living in the area to be a pulling together, rather than a polarization of classes.
As the poles melt and survivors in lowland areas elsewhere move to high ground, they will wash up upon Prague’s shores, a problem for those who have managed to establish settlements in the Aftertime. https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/hercolobus/esp_hercolobus_52.htm https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/hercolobus/esp_hercolobus_54.htm
