With a diameter of 150 to 300 meters, he is also a true div. However, humanity does not have to be afraid. None of the two parts is a danger to the earth.
Disastrous consequences of asteroid impacts on Earth
Consequences of impact would be catastrophic. In 2013, an explosion of meteorites 20 meters above the city of Chelyabinsk in Russia revealed the destruction of asteroids. About 7,000 buildings were damaged, injuring about 1,500 people. It was said that the explosion had a devastating power of 30 to 40 nuclear bombs in Hiroshima.
