VOD: Impact Los Angeles

We all know the world probably will not end in December of 2012, but with all the talk about cataclysmic events, one can't help but wonder: what if?

Smoke, ash, fire, giant rocks raining from the sky. We all have the picture of a meteor strike. But what would it actually look like? How much damage could it and would it end up doing? In this History Channel simulation, we get a peak at what would happen if a giant meteor made contact with Earth right here in Los Angeles. Its been a relatively cool summer here in L.A., but no one wants it this hot.
