The seismic shaking of 8.9 intensity in the Richer scale could be the most significant effect at short and large distances from the impact site; effects of ejecta fallout and the air blast decrease much more rapidly with distance away from the impact site, being significant at Cumaribo (70 km away), almost undetectable at Puerto Inirida (150km away) and neglectable and impossible to recognize at distances greater than 150km away, such as Puerto Carreno (220km away) and the other four points of observation in Puerto Gaitan, Mitu, Villavicencio and Bogota.
