Nasa link here --> NASA 2013-TV135
Also here is an interest discussion of the possible impact dynamics --> Impact Details
a 10km wide crater, magnitude 7.3 equivalent earthquake with Cat 1 type hurricane force winds ~150mph!!
So basically... you don't want to be 60 km or closer as your survival chances are nill. Still, at that distance, the damage is not as bad as I would have thought it would be.
It seems like the wind blast is the primary danger and your house collapsing.

~150mph might be a Cat 1 in NY or CT, but down here in Florida ~150mph is a Cat 4.
