Russia Meteorite

At least 400 people are injured after a meteor streaks across Russia's Ural Mountains.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Golloher has the details from Moscow:


Residents say they saw a giant white ball of fire streak through the sky, explosions and then rocks on fire fall to the ground.

A 19-story sky scraper in the region lost most of its windows from the shock-wave and a zinc factory's roof also caved in due to the explosion.

Russian officials are urging people not to panic and that it was merely a meteor and not the end of the world. Thousands of personnel have been dispatched to the region to assess the damage and to help treat minor injuries.
