What Would Happen If An Asteroid Hit St. George Utah?
Have you ever wondered what would happen if an asteroid hit St. George Utah?
Of course you have.
I recently found a website https://neal.fun/asteroid-launcher
This website is perfect for someone with a morbid mind, like myself. You can pretend to launch asteroids to any location on Earth. Think of it as an online version of a rage room.
You may wonder “Why would I want an asteroid to hit Southern Utah?” Well I have a few answers for that.
- Do you hate your job? Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to go through the hassle of quitting?
- Did your children complain about another dinner you made? Well destroy that dinner! You thought I was going to say ‘destroy those kids’. I’m not that morbid.
- Do you have an ex that won’t stop stalking you?
- Too many weeds in your backyard and you feel you need to just burn them all away?
- Have a mid-term exam you didn’t study for?
- Do you want a new car that is paid for by your insurance company? First make sure that ‘hit by asteroid’ is covered.
- Costco parking lot too crowded? Let's level it!
Through my extensive research, I found that an asteroid ONE MILE WIDE is needed to destroy Southern Utah from Ivins to Hurricane. Cedar City would be left alone. You’re welcome!
But that's just the CRATER. There's a whole lot more damage that would be caused by other things.
For example, that same impact would create a 63 mile wide fireball that would incinerate everyone and everything for miles around, including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Salt Lake City. Nearly 9 MILLION PEOPLE would burn to death.
But wait, there's more! This same impact would create a 248 Decibel shockwave that would kill about 600,000 people, collapsing their lungs, rupturing eardrums and destroying every building within a 424 mile radius.
Oh and that doesn't even mention what the WIND would do! The impact would create 12,681 MPH wind! Over 6.6 million people would die from the wind alone. It would level everything in the Western United States.
So really what we're trying to say is, if a meteor as small as 1 mile wide was going fast enough...
