    Echo, it wouldn't take that large of an object to create havoc. Suppose this had taken place between 1960 and 1990 in Eastern US or Western Russia;

    Tanguska event - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about Tanguska event

    Tunguska Event
    Explosion at Tunguska, central Siberia, Russia, in June 1908, which devastated around 6,500 sq km/2,500 sq mi of forest. It is thought to have been caused by either a cometary nucleus or a fragment of Encke's Comet about 200 m/660 ft across, or possibly an asteroid – a bright falling object was seen from 600 km/375 mi away. The explosion was equivalent to a hydrogen bomb (10–20 megatons) and produced a colossal shock wave; it was heard up to 1,000 km/625 away.

    Careful, that didn't work out so well for Jack and Kyle.
