It depends on the size and speed of the comet, meteor, big rock, some randomly named space rock,etc.
If its big enough, it might just, destory earth all together. That, no bunker can save unless a colony spaceship.

You need bunkers in wartime because they are located where the bombs are going to be. In the case of a meteor strike, given that you know exactly where it is going to hit it's much easier to move people to several thousand miles away. No radioactive fallout or radiation to worry about, so an aboveground settlement will be fine. Depending on the exact effect impact on the climate, food is going to be the big issue.
