Britons have voted to leave the European Union, their concerns about immigration and what some saw as the ever-increasing power of the 28-member bloc trumping the attraction of being part of a single market of more than 500 million people and a European project forged from the ashes of World War II.
Here's a look at what happens next.
The Dow Jones closed down over 600 points and over three percent Friday, the day the United Kingdom voted to exit the European Union and Prime Minister David Cameron said he would resign by October.
Stocks plunged sharply, US government bonds soared and currencies broke decades-old records after Britain's decision. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged as far as 650 points in late afternoon trading, and a last-minute, 100-point rally was stifled by the closing bell. It closed at 17,401, down 610 points from the open.
The S&P 500 index had its worst open, in percentage terms, in 30 years. It lost 3.6 percent to close at 2,037.
Britain voted to leave the European Union after a bitterly divisive referendum campaign, toppling the prime minister, sending global markets plunging and shattering the stability of a project in continental unity designed half a century ago to prevent World War III.
The decision launches a yearslong process to renegotiate trade, business and political links between the U.K. and what would become a 27-nation bloc, an unprecedented divorce that could take decades to complete.
President Barack Obama said Friday that both the EU and the U.K. will remain "indispensable partners" of the U.S.
Speaking in California at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, Obama said that the vote speaks to the challenges of globalization and the special relationship with Britain "will endure."
He said he spoke to British Prime Minister David Cameron and the U.K. is committed to an orderly transition out of the EU.
Donald Trump, in a visit to Scotland on Friday, hailed Britain's vote to leave the European Union, drawing parallels to the anger driving his own presidential campaign.
"I love to see people take their country back," he told reporters at a news conference at one of his golf courses in Scotland. "And that's really what's happening in the United States" and other parts of the world.
The campaign leading to Thursday's stunning vote for Britain to leave the European Union shared some of the populist themes driving the Trump campaign, including a wariness of immigration, concern about borders and skepticism of the value of multinational organizations.

U.S. National Whitewater Center
Health officials found a brain-destroying amoeba in the water at a North Carolina water park, which suspended operations Friday, NBC News reported.
Officials found evidence of the microbe, and shut down the affected parts of the park after an Ohio teen died earlier this week after visiting the U.S. National Whitewater Center near Charlotte. Only whitewater activities are suspended, official said.
The amoeba, called Naegleria fowleri, occasionally kills people, and is often found in warm bodies of water. Cases of infection are rare. In cases that do result in infection, the microbe can get into the sinuses and from there infect the brain. Although the risk is low, experts say people worried about infection should avoid getting water up their noses.
The North Carolina park says it disinfects the water used throughout the facility.

The Department of Defense is expected to announce within weeks that transgender men and women will be allowed to openly serve in the military, several Pentagon officials tell NBC News.
Secretary of Defense Ash Carter could make the announcement as early as next week; he is expected to call for full implementation in one year.
The details of the repeal could shift. One defense official told NBC News that the working group that has been studying this issue since July 2015 will provide broad guidance.
It will be up to the individual services to work out the details. Those details include barracks, rules for new recruits, allowance for sex reassignment surgery, diagnosis of dysmorphic disorder, policies on group showers and more.

Ten-year-old Garrett Lowry loves playing baseball, but there are caps more important to him than the ones he wears on the baseball field.
With the help of his mom and grandma, the Littleton, Colorado, native knit 50 caps for sick patients at Children's Hospital Colorado, NBC affiliate KUSA reports.

Bernie Sanders says he will vote for Hillary Clinton for president.
Sanders, who has not officially endorsed his rival, was asked on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Friday whether he would vote for Clinton in November.
"Yes," he said. "I think the issue right here is I'm going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump. I think Trump in so many ways would be a disaster for this country if he were to be elected president."
Still, he stopped short of a full endorsement and made clear he was not ending his campaign.
"Why would I want to do that when I want to fight to make sure that we have the best platform that we possibly can, that we win the most delegates that we can?" he said.
The comments came a day after the Vermont senator told a roaring crowd of supporters on Thursday his campaign is "just getting started" fighting economic inequality, changing the Democratic Party and bolstering Democrats running for Congress.
