If the Tunguska object was roughly the same size (and it is greatly debated how big it was), then a detonation of this asteroid would have been the equivalent of 15 megatons.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914
