"it's harder to find mid-size asteroids, some of which are still big enough to cause continent-wide damage. And when you consider even smaller objects that could wreak regional and city-scale devastation, the threat increases substantially.

"In 1908, an asteroid just 50 meters wide exploded over Tunguska, Russia and leveled more than 2,000 square kilometers of forest. If a similar event happened over a populated region like New York City, it could cause "millions of casualties," the report says."
