He is an interesting exerpt detailing the small blasts:

Quirky blasts

There were several events that were unusually deadly -- a matter of bad luck for 54 million people:

* 136th Millennium: A 200-yard-wide asteroid hits the South China Sea just 300 miles from Hong Kong. A 40-yard-high tsunami sweeps the coast and kills 18 million people.
* 20th Millennium: An asteroid just 70 yards across explodes in the skies 14 miles above London. 10 million are killed in the 80-megaton blast and firestorm.
* 273rd Millennium: A 50-yard-wide comet travelling at an unusually fast 150,000 mph explodes in the atmosphere 25 miles above Mexico City. 14 million are killed by the 110-megaton blast and firestorm.
* 721st Millennium: An almost identical event occurs over Manila, killing 12 million.
