Meterorite strikes populated area in Russia

hundreds injured - this is not the one everyone was watching for on 2/15

It is smaller and came down in a populated city in the Ural Mountain area, Weighed 10 tons and many people filmed it as it streaked across the morning sky. It looks like it struck a factory. Injuries seem to be from flying glass - the shockwave when it hit the atmosphere broke out a lot of windows. TV news has videos but nothing from CNN news alerts yet

CNN never sent out an alert - maybe not wanting to panic the public. the video is just stunning. This is what your mind takes you to when the talk about the 'big one' that will have the near miss today.
Loads of video from cell phone captures. The news reported it and then dropped it. Probably no reporters in the area but I wish we were seeing more about the damage.

That's really interesting to watch the videos. You are right about the lack of updates - hearing Bill Nye the science guy explain what a meteor is just isn't enough!

Still the news broadcasts the NASA photos of the little blip of the big one uneventfully passing thru while these videos from Russia are so dramatic
