The asteroid day takes place on the anniversary of the Siberian Tunguska event, which destroys parts of the Siberian forest and remains the most powerful explosion ever documented. With the 111th anniversary of the Tunguska event, geologist Randall Carlson warned of the horrific consequences of the asteroid impact on Earth. He told RT News that the 1908 Tungus event is probably 150 feet in diameter and its impact is equivalent to a 15-megaton hydrogen bomb that collides with land.
He warned, "If you had an event equivalent to the Tunguska event in 1908 on a densely populated area, you would probably have millions of casualties."
The geological theorist warned over 800 square meters. miles during the Tunguska event were "literally flattened and just sawn, as if they were matches."
He added: "This is a very powerful blasting wave that could knock down buildings."
