Meteorite explosions in the skies of Russia’s Urals region has sparked panic in three major cities. Witnesses said that houses shuddered, windows were blown out and cellphones stopped working.

A meteor — estimated to be about 10 tons — entered the Earth’s atmosphere about 9:20 a.m. Russian local time at a speed of at least 33,000 mph and shattered at an altitude estimated at 18-32 miles above the ground.

In Chelyabinsk, 985 people in the city asked for medical assistance — 43 were hospitalized. It is estimated over one million square feet of glass has been shattered in the city. Most of the injuries were caused by shattered glass. A roof collapsed at a zinc commercial plant.

Chelyabinsk is about 930 miles east of Moscow.

Unbelievably spectacular smoke trail from meteor over Ural mountain region in Russia, and terrifying boom — either sonic boom or impact and shockwave boom.

Multiple videos show a cloud trail, followed by a large boom, and then multiple smaller booms — setting off car alarms.
