This map just plain looked wrong so I read the Forbes article.
Do you see that landmass to the east of Florida? That is Atlantis. You won't find it on many other maps.
The fact that you can see anything of Florida while a corner of Colorado is flooded should ring an alarm in your head. The highest elevation in Florida is 345 feet. The highest elevation east of the Mississippi is Mt Mitchell at about 6700 feet.
So what is this map?

Glad you asked. It is an artist's representation of what the the earth might look like after it was hit by an asteroid of unknown size traveling at an unknown speed and hitting the earth in an unspecified location.
Don't use the Forbes map for any serious planning. The map is made-for-tabloid trash, intended to gull the patsies.
