South America was a continent on the Western Hemisphere of the Earth. It had the countries of Brazil, Peru, Venezuela and it had the famous Amazon Rainforest. It was the home to various Brazilians and other animal species.
During the 2012 apocalypse, South America was hit by massive earthquakes which caused several of its cities to descend into global chaos. Many of the mountains on the continent had suffered damage and the earthquakes caused several avalanches, killing numerous people and destroying various towns and regions. South America was then swept by a megatsunami in the Worldwide Flooding.
When the apocalypse ended, South America is submerged underwater and is left with extreme damage from the earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis, rendering it uninhabitable.
