So apparently the Burning Legion is invading Russia... ow.ly/hJI1P- Josh Allen (@devolore) February 15, 2013
For those of you unaware, late last night (around 9 a.m. local time where the event occurred), a meteorite fell to Earth in the Russian Ural Mountains. It created a brilliant light show in the sky, leaving a heavy white contrail in its wake and reportedly exploding at an altitude of 10,000 meters (32,800 feet.) The shockwave of the meteor's explosion caused surface-level damage, resulting in over one hundred individuals calling for medical assistance due to injuries sustained from broken glass and other shrapnel. The number of reported injured continued to rise throughout the night, up to 400 less than two hours after impact. A zinc factory in the area also suffered heavy damages: the shockwave cause 6,000 square feet of roofing to collapse. If you're curious what such an impact might sound like, you're in luck. And here's another for good measure.
