Colorado - Current to 3,000 feet
Being far enough away from any coastal regions, Colorado is not as susceptible to tidal surges or massive coastal flooding. Also, Colorado’s lowest point is 3315 feet above sea level (the highest low point in all 50 states) on the Kansas border, making the chances sea levels would get high enough to enter the state almost non-existent. If there was a slow sea level rise that allowed water to make its way into Wyoming, the affects would start on the Arikaree River at the states northeastern border.

NOTE: The highest tsunami recorded was 1720 feet in Lituya Bay, Alaska.
