New Mexico - Current Level to 1800 feet
Being far enough away from any coastal regions, New Mexico is not as susceptible to tidal surges or massive coastal flooding. Also, New Mexico’s lowest point is 2840 feet above sea level on the Texas 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 New Mexico, the affects would start on the Pecos River at the states southern border.

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