I'm always a little freaked out by stories like this. With plenty of "real" things to worry about, phenomenon like this seem like a waste of mental energy, but then there seem to be a quite a few phenomenon like this that occur every few hundred years (Tunguska). At some point, the laws of probability will catch up with us.
In the meantime, my greater fear is a Bruce Willis/Ben Affleck movie coming out of this.
