That is an amazing video. The number injured is tough, I'm accustomed to seeing this in movies, not real life. Did anyone know the meteor was headed towards earth?

The video I saw on the news this AM said it landed in a frozen lake, no injuries. :)

I saw the audio/video footage from dashboard mounted cameras this morning, and was amazed that the drivers' responses were pretty casual. I'd scream like a girl if I saw that. :eek:

I wonder if that spooked the fish in the lake. "Let's go home, Boris. They won't be biting until tomorrow."

Quite a coincidence to not be a part of the close one?

Must be some cluster were'flying through

In the early 60s or 80s, they probably would have launched - thinking we were launching a 1st strike (kidding)

Thanks for posting this, it will be good when they get it sorted as to whether or not there are casualties or not.

Got report from FOX this AM and latest, also FOX a few minutes ago, said 1000 injured mostly from flying glass. No fatalities reported so far.
