> Massive tsunami sweeps Atlantic Coast in asteroid impact scenario

However, other calculations show that for asteriods under one kilometer in diameter 
the tsunami wouldn't be unbelievably massive.  The US Navy did a study on 
explosion-produced tsunamis and concluded that the effect would not be catastrophic in 
any case where the blast did not go all the way down to the ocean bed.  Asteroids 
between 100m and 1000m in diameter might "only" produce normal sized tsunamis.  On the 
other hand, larger asteroids (i.e. bigger than one km. diameter) would be a global
