One of my favorite books is about just this type of
scenario. It's science fiction, of course, but I've found
that it might be closest to reality that fiction of this
type of event can get.

The book is titled "Lucifer's Hammer", and is by Larry Piven
and Jerry Pournelle, who have written numerous novels, and I
believe that one or both of them do try to be scientifically
accurate when they write their fiction. Basically, it's
about a comet that impacts the Earth within a short time of
being discovered by two amateur astronomers, and the
resultant effects on society as seen by a particular group
of survivors.

The book is available at Amazon.com if not in a local
