This timeline was generated by the following code:

{{world timeline|
 {{Timeline marker
  |year=-2348
  |marker=<span style="font-size:200%">♦</span>
 }}|
 {{Timeline section
  |start=-2448
  |end=-2248
  |#start colour=
  |text='''Flood'''
 }}
}}
Opera bug

The Opera browser apparently rounds percentages to whole numbers before calculating the pixel sizes, with the result that the timeline sections have gaps between them.
