Just goes to show that the talk on our forums about survival prepardness is not the work of paranoid minds.
 
Expect most of you have read by now about the near asteroid miss the other day - 48,000 miles is just way too close.  From what I read had it air burst in our atmosphere the explosion would have been similar in size to the Tunguska event in Siberia in 1908.  Estimates of that blast equivalent put it at anywhere from 5 to 30 megatons - levelled about 800 square miles of forest.
 
Can't even imagine the destruction if it hit a large urban area, or the Tsunami that would result froma water impact.
 
Estimated size:  60-150 ft diameter
Speed: 5.5 miles per second
