A meteor crashing in Russia's Ural mountains has injured at least 950 people, as the shockwave blew out windows and rocked buildings.Most of those hurt, in the Chelyabinsk region where the meteor fell, suffered cuts and bruises but at least 46 remain in hospital.A fireball streaked through the clear morning sky, followed by loud bangs.President Vladimir Putin said he thanked God no big fragments had fallen in populated areas.A large meteor fragment landed in a lake near Chebarkul, a town in Chelyabinsk region...............

Hearing it crash into the atmosphere and then all the glass breaking was pretty crazy. Hard to believe that happens frequently, just not in populated areas.

Some absolutely amazing videos going around, but why do so many Russian drivers have on board cameras?

Apparently to protect themselves from corrupt policemen it says in several stories - allegedly. I'm not saying they are corrupt you understand other people are and if there is anybody say from the KGB reading this I think your policeman are just wunnerful.

There is some weird stuff going on, this one didn't look like a meteor to me but i am not a meteor expert lol it is very different to the Russian one today

Also where is the damage or noise no one heard it or it didn't cause any damge?
