Most of the Norther Hemisphere water is stored in the Greenland glaciers and the release into the Atlantic will take about 50 years to finally pour into the Pacific. The water rise on the east coast of US will be about 30 times greater than in the Pacific and, due to coriolis effects, 5 times greater than on the west coast of Europe. Look here for some general info on the new model.

None of this takes into account the thermal expansion of water as it heats up

Yeah! All the snow that should have been falling on Greenland and in the Arctic Circle and turning into glacier is falling further south and just running into the ocean. Oh, well - I live in Seattle so my hill is safe for a little while longer
