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 disaster.

In any case, I think we could use some Preparation A . . .

God bless America,
Land that I love!
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam…
God bless America!
My home, sweet home.

-- Irving Berlin (1888-1989)
