This is what would happen if an asteroid hit New York

“Thousands of years ago, cities were a minuscule fraction of Earth’s surface; practically all asteroid strikes were guaranteed to occur over virtually uninhabited areas. Today, urban areas now cover more than three percent of Earth’s land area, meaning that out of every 100 asteroid strikes our planet receives, roughly one of them will strike a city. And if that asteroid is around 100 meters in size or larger, the effects would be catastrophic.”

Asteroid strikes are among the most destructive natural disasters to ever impact planet Earth. While an extinction-level event, like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago, are exceedingly rare, we face city-killer impacts somewhere on Earth’s surface every few hundred years. If one such event happened over an actual city, the chain reaction of destructive events would begin with a fireball, followed by thermal radiation, causing millions of people to die. Buildings would be leveled for an even greater distance, while inevitable destruction would continue far beyond that. But the greatest number of people would suffer from burns, even from scores or hundreds of miles away.

The asteroid that struck Lake Michigan yesterday was luckily harmless, but the threat of a city-killer is a real one we’re woefully unprepared for. Find out what would happen today!
