How would YOU be affected if Earth was hit by an asteroid?

Prophecy Sign:  Signs in the Celestial bodies  

Will the earth be hit by a large asteroid?  Bible prophecy does seem to indicate as much.

The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water-- the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter. Revelation 8:10-11 NIV

How would YOU be affected if Earth was hit by an asteroid? Interactive map reveals devastating damage a space rock would inflict if it hit cities around the world 
On Sunday evening, an asteroid the size of a house soared past the Earth and may have released shards of meteorite into our atmosphere. One such fragment is believed to have created a crater 39-ft wide (20 metres) in Nicaragua - but what would have happened if the asteroid itself had struck the Earth? The Killer Asteroids project was set up to answer such questions, and calculates how far and wide the spread of damage would be if a space rock collided with our planet.
A large comet hitting New York, for example, would create devastation across the east coast of the US, and people in Illinois and Ottawa in Canada would suffer first degree burns. All of these estimates were based on calculations devised by Professor Robert Marcus and his team at Purdue University, London. His online calculator lets users customise the size and speed of projectiles.
