If such a huge object made it into the earth shouldn't it be possible to see a spike on a earthquake monitor near to the estamited impact zone?

This should be a direct link to the OP's story.
The impact was an ordinary chondrite, class H4 or H5, travelling at 3-6 km/s. impacting at an angle of 45-60 degrees. Initial velocities were 12-18 km/s, mostly likely 16 km/s. It is estimated to have had a diameter of 1.1 m, a mass of 3 tonnes, and the explosion to have been equivalent to 2 tonnes TNT. No fragment larger than a few kg was recovered. The meteoric material has weathered very rapidly. The impactor’s orbit was probably inclined at 25 degrees to the ecliptic and an aphelion inside the orbit of Jupiter.
The crater was 13.6 m in diameter and 1.04 m deep from the ground surface to the submerged floor. Water has risen to the ground level. The rim is between 1 and 3 m high. There was a strong secondary steam explosion from shallow groundwater heated by the impact. The crater was excavated into alluvium of a dry stream bed and has a large ray, the rim has classic inverted stratigraphy. The crater walls have slumped significantly because of their wet unconsolidated nature. Numerous microscopic shock deformation textures were observed in the ejecta.
