The Pacific Ocean covers about one-half of that area

There's a nice picture on the Interweb showing the Earth with the entire side more or less pure Pacific Ocean, plus on minus the camera not being infinitely far away and thus being ever so slightly misleading.

So nearly 50% odds it'll go splash in the Pacific. Plus, rumors indicate that there may be some additional oceans on the other side. Gotta be about 65% wet in total in that latitude band.

So, most likely it'll just disappear while nobody is looking.

Good luck to those in the At Risk latitude band.
