Fun fact... those used to be deep under the ocean. Most of that area has whale skeletons NOT dinosaur skeletons.

Return to the sea I say!

Same in California. The cliffs here are full of whale bones.

Same with Kansas. There used to be a sea that stretched from the artic ocean to Yucatan peninsula the Appalachian mountains to the rocky mountains 85 million years ago. Florida is a bunch of limestone sitting on top of the Florida platform that rose from the sea and will return one day. Basically a bunch of water soluble rocks with millions of tiny holes slowly getting eroded away. Sink holes are common and they have a river known as the Florida aquifer that runs underneath the state between the limestone and bedrock. I used to live there way back in the day before moving north, keeping the roads level was impossible in some areas because random mini sink holes just kept appearing. Theyd throw more asphalt on top to level it out and the extra weight made it sink more the next time. Some places must have asphalt ten feet thick. It caused our water and sewage pipes to break every few years and at least once a year we'd end up with boil water notices because of it. If any state is going to sink into the ocean it'll be florida, mostly the bad parts will be affected though
