Population Changes To Come In 2019

Most of the damage to cities will occur in the latter half of 2019. The “2020” numbers are for January, 2020. Note that I used 2007 population numbers so that I could include many cities world-wide and all from the same source.

I would move away from the cities that have been flagged with color - unless you wish to be in the center of action. The red flagged cities will be either vacated or destroyed. The destruction will be caused by tremendous tsunami or by subsidence into the ocean waters. The yellow and orange flagged cities will be devastated. Subsequently, populations in many of these cities will continue to decrease due to a lack of resources.

Obviously, there are many other locations not considered in these predictions. Generally, stay more than 100 miles from any seashore. Also, consider active volcanos and faults to be deadly zones.
