Seeking to escape the hot earth sweltering under a sun that never sets, during the week before the shift when rotation of the earth stops, those along coastal towns and inland bays on the East Coast of the US will try to escape by boat to cooler places. Richmond has many residents who boat for recreation, the coast a short drive and boating a long tradition among the residents. The large ocean bay will be some protection from being dragged out to sea during the sloshing that occurs during and after the shift, so many will find themselves afloat after the shift, hungry and seeking to return inland for food. Those in the city who have survived being dragged down when the Atlantic stretches, and survived the tidal waves that are inevitable along any coast, will find themselves approached by an armada of boats demanding whatever supplies the hapless survivors have managed to gather.
