"According to the Mail Online, if an asteroid of the same size collided with the Earth, it could destroy a small city. Its destruction would be half of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb."

No, it would not. An asteroid of this size would be largely vaporized in the upper atmosphere and any surviving fragments would be quite small. Fortunately, asteroids don't work the way OMFG! reporters want them to.
