Meteorite falls in Russia’s Chelyabinsk region; 100 injured
« on: February 15, 2013, 07:52:56 AM »

MOSCOW — A meteor streaked across the sky above Russia’s Ural Mountains on Friday morning, causing sharp explosions and reportedly injuring around 100 people, including many hurt by broken glass.

Fragments of the meteor fell in a thinly populated area of the Chelyabinsk region, the Emergency Ministry said in a statement.

Interior Ministry spokesman Vadim Kolesnikov said 102 people had called for medical assistance following the incident, mostly for treatment of injuries from glass broken by the explosions.

Kolsenikov also said about 600 square meters (6000 square feet) of a roof at a zinc factory had collapsed.

Reports conflicted on what exactly happened in the clear skies. A spokeswoman for the Emergency Ministry, Irina Rossius, told The Associated Press that there was a meteor shower, but another ministry spokeswoman, Elena Smirnikh, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying it was a single meteorite.

Amateur video broadcast on Russian television showed an object speeding across the sky about 9:20 a.m. local time (0320 GMT), leaving a thick white contrail and an intense flash.

Meteorite crash in Russia: UFO fears spark panic in the Urals (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

A series of explosions in the skies of Russia’s Urals region, reportedly caused by a meteorite shower, has sparked panic in three major cities. Witnesses said that houses shuddered, windows were blown out and cellphones have stopped working.

According to unconfirmed reports, the meteorite was intercepted by an air defense unit at the Urzhumka settlement near Chelyabinsk. A missile salvo reportedly blew the meteorite to pieces at an altitude of 20 kilometers.

A bright flash was seen in the Chelyabinsk, Tyumen and Sverdlovsk regions, Russia’s Republic of Bashkiria and in northern Kazakhstan.

Up to 150 people sought medical attention as a result of the incident, according to the Russian Interior Ministry. No serious injuries have been reported, with most of the injuries caused by broken glass and minor concussions.

Crazy russian LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky announced that meteor rain is the intrigues of Americans. "This is not a meteorite crashes, they tested a new weapon - the Americans ...", "You are as a primitive tribe. What are meteorites? Nothing never never falls. Space - a universe with its own laws, "- said the politician.  ha2ha

By the way, several years ago I watched this movie. There is a lot of mistakes and omissions in history which movie shows.

Sure there were several historical mistakes, Dmitry, but it was a love story.

I'm not sure. There is little information about it. It seems the main body fell into the lake and the other parts of meteor fell all round.
