Meteor hits Russia at 33,000 mph

1,000 injured when sonic boom shatters windows

(DAILY MAIL) A terrifying meteorite shower left more than 1,000 people injured, buildings devastated and the mobile network wiped out when it hit Russia this morning.

Brightly burning rocks could be seen for miles as they crashed at around 9.20am local time and one bystander described it ‘like a scene from the Armageddon movie.’

The meteorite is believed to have landed in a lake near Chebarkul, a town in the neighbouring Chelyabinsk region.
