Asteroid alert: NASA warns of FIRESTORMS and tsunamis as 1KM rock approaches Earth 1

The space rock is racing towards our planet at speeds of about 15.19km per second or 35,567mph (57,240km/h).

However, NASA has said the risk of dying from an asteroid impact in the foreseeable future is very slim.

The space agency said: “No one should be overly concerned about an Earth impact of an asteroid or comet.

“The threat to any one person from auto accidents, disease, other natural disasters and a variety of other problems is much higher than the threat from NEOs.

“Over long periods of time, however, the chances of the Earth being impacted are not negligible so that some form of NEO insurance is warranted.”
