Asia was a continent on Earth. It was the planet's largest continent. It had the countries of Russia, India, and China. It was also one of the locations where the Arks were being constructed so that humanity can survive the world's ending in 2012.
Preparing for the End
Ever since the discovery of the world's ending in 2009, the governments began a top-secret project to ensure that humanity survives from extinction. They plan to build nine enormous ships called Arks, to save more than 400,000 people in Asia, due to it being the largest continent on Earth and in the Himalayas, since the mountains are remote. Thousands of workers were recruited to help build the Arks and were forced to keep it a secret from the public at large by the orders of Carl Anheuser in order to prevent a massive panic, knowing that a lot of the Earth's population want to survive.
As the two years pass, with four Arks being completed, while only five are still under construction. One of the Ark workers, Tenzin, planned to save his family by stowing away on Ark 4 where the American people are on board.
When Satnam Tsurutani informed Adrian Helmsley about the Earth's crust becoming more unstable, President Thomas Wilson recommended that they evacuate to the Arks at once. The people who were chosen to board the Arks, were informed immediately left for the Arks.
During the worldwide apocalypse, massive earthquakes (of unprecedented strength) wrecked the Earth's cities and nations, volcanoes erupted which engulfed several areas across the world, including super-volcanoes and gigantic tsunamis began to flood the entire planet with several feet of water. Asia was hit by the mega earthquakes, which destroyed various cities and nations on the continent before a tsunami flooded the entire continent. The Arks were able to survive the world's disastrous ending, with more than 400,000 passengers and crew on board.
As a result of the apocalypse, Asia was left with extreme damage from the earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis, rendering it uninhabitable and the Himalayas were no longer the roof of the world, passing the title to the Drakensberg Mountains when the African continent risen above the sea level.
