Update at 9:04 a.m.:

NPR just reported that at least 900 people in one Russian community have sought medical help following Friday's meteor hit.

Original post:

A meteor slammed into the Ural Mountains in Russia Friday, reportedly injuring hundreds. The Associated Press says at least three people are hospitalized in serious condition.

This comes on the same day NASA is tracking an asteroid the size of an office building that will fly by Earth today.

Still, scientists say there is no link between the two events.
