A meteor exploded in the skies above Russia’s Urals region, sending a shock wave that shattered windows, hurting about 100 people.

The meteor disintegrated above Chelyabinsk at about 7:25 a.m. Moscow time, the Emergencies Ministry’s division in the Urals district said today on its website. Burning streaks lit up the sky, caught by drivers on dashboard cameras and posted on YouTube.

“A serious meteor fell,” billionaire Sergey Galitskiy, chief executive officer of OAO Magnit, Russia’s biggest food retailer by value, said in a post on his Twitter Inc. account. “At our hypermarket in Emanzhelinsk, windows were blown out, the roof shook, there was a strong shock wave.”

More than 100 people have reported injuries, mostly from broken glass, Vadim Kolesnik, a ministry official, said by phone. None were serious or required hospitalization, according to the ministry.

Russia’s public health chief Gennady Onishchenko closed schools in the Chelyabinsk region, Interfax said. Radiation is within normal levels and power systems are working as usual, the Emergencies Ministry’s regional division said on its website.

As many as 20,000 emergency staff and three aircraft have been deployed in the Urals region, the ministry said.

Holly

it's all in your head
Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by fault lines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits.

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will 'cause
I sure could use a vacation from this.
