Europe will go through some of the quickest and most severe Earth changes. Much of Northern Europe will go beneath the sea as the tectonic plate upon which it rests collapses. Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark will be inundated, leaving hundreds of small islands.

Most of the United Kingdom, from Scotland to the Channel, will go beneath the sea. A few small islands, about the size of what is now Shetland Island, will remain. London and Birmingham will be among the remaining islands. Ireland will go beneath the sea except for higher ground.

Russia (the former Soviet Union) will be separated from Europe by a large new sea as the Caspian, Black, Kara, and Baltic Seas merge. The new sea, divided by the Ural Mountain range, will stretch all the way to the Jenisej River in Siberia. The region's climate will become more temperate, enabling Russia to supply much of Europe's food. The Black Sea will merge with the North Sea as well, leaving Bulgaria and Romania under water.

The region from Poland to Turkey will see great turmoil. A great Holy War will be born in this region, ending with the purification of the land by fire and water. Portions of western Turkey will go under water, creating a new coastline from Istanbul to Cyprus. Much of central Europe will be inundated; most of the land between the Mediterranean Sea and the Baltic Sea will be lost. Many of the World War II battlegrounds will go beneath the sea, and small islands will be formed.

Much of France will go under water, leaving an island in the Paris region. A new waterway will separate Switzerland from France, along a line from Geneva to Zurich. Italy will be divided by water. Venice, Naples, Rome and Genoa will be claimed by the sea, but the Vatican will be saved by moving to higher ground. Higher elevations will remain as islands. New land will rise from Sicily to Sardinia.
