State Of The World

The second wave brought catastrophic earthquakes and tidal waves to coastal areas and places along unsteady fault lines.
The lack of technology, no TV, internet or radio, and no way to travel quickly from one place to the next, news travels abysmally slow, and in the midst of the third wave and after it hardly moves at all. So unless you were a survivor of the second wave or spoke to a survivor, the chances of you knowing exactly the state of the world at large is close to nil.
There are things that can be assumed. Like the breaking off of the western part of California as an earthquake ripped open the San Andres Fault. Just like scientists have been warning about for years.

North America and Canada
Most of the internal parts of the United States, the Great Plains and Mid-West has been left untouched by earthquakes. There were tremors felt throughout the US, especially in the West and North East.
California, Oregon and Washington have new coast lines as a major earthquake ripped those states in half. Undoubtedly there are island remnants of them, but those areas are largely under water.
Farther north, British Columbia and into Alaska the coasts were hit with devastating tidal waves. Not a city or town within 10 miles of the coast was left standing.

The eastern seaboard didn't fare much better. The earthquakes weren't as severe, but the tidal wave was much bigger and every city and town 20 miles from the southern east coast was razed. All of Florida and the Keys were torn apart as a large tidal wave came from the east and a smaller, but no less devastating one came from the Gulf of Mexico.

The northern eastern seaboard saw mass destruction, Manhattan and its boroughs, Long Island, Rhode Island and most of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and a large part of the coast of Maine was washed away when the tidal wave hit. Thanks to the protective barrier of Long Island, the coast of Connecticut fared the best. The wave only taking out areas 30 miles inland.

The eastern seaboard of Canada and it's islands suffered a similar fate.

Mexico and Central America*
The Baja Penisula and the west coast of Mexico was crushed under a tidal wave. Where Baja once was is now ocean.
The eastern seaboard of Mexico fared a little better Mexico City was
