    I hope our Russian ADV members and Ural employees are all okay after the big bang event.

    Irbit is about 5 hours away by road according to Google Maps but I am thinking a blast of that magnitude would be heard and felt over a considerable distance.

    Mother Nature can be real b*tch!

    It was in Chelyabinsk. This city is a kind of "meme" in Russia, and now the folk-jokes are even more funny))

    Chelyabinsk residents now make fun of themselves and make up different stories about their meteorite. For example - "Megatron, seeing that he landed in Chelyabinsk, decided to self-destruct", and so on like that.

    Eyewitnesses talking, that at first was a bright flash, and then - a shockwave. In a structures were smashed windows, destroyed one of the shops of the local plant. But no one hasn't killed or injured. All now happy to discuss events in the Internet))

    People talking, that the children are most happy now: the school buildings were damaged, and now the students are freed from the school for a while

    There are a lot videos from the auto registrators. Like this:

    As they say in the comments: "A typical day in Chelyabinsk." Well, as you can see, the driver no reaction. "Blow something? So lolwhat?" :lol3

    The photos and video on that were quite impressive. Barring injury, it would have been one hell of a sight to witness.
