Meteor shower over Russia causes explosions on the ground

 

The Russian interior ministry said people had been injured by flying glass at a school in Chelyabinsk. No other casualty information was yet available.

Local residents reported witnessing burning objects in the sky of the Chelyabinsk and Sverdlovsk regions.

"Preliminary indications are that it was a meteorite rain," an emergency official told RIA-Novosti. "We have information about a blast at 10,000-metre altitude. It is being verified."

A witness in Chelyabinsk reported hearing a huge blast early in the morning and feeling a shockwave in a 19-storey building in the town centre.

The sounds of car alarms and breaking windows could be heard in the area, the witness said, and mobile phones were working intermittently.

Waiting for someone to trot out the asteroid "expert" who said he'd been warning about this kind of thing for years, but no one would listen to him.
