"I'm pretty sure I have watched this scene on Stargate SG1!"
yes, sg1 made us really open minded to weird things
"Scary stuff! Apparently there is a nuke reactor in that area that luckily wasn't hit."
if the reactor would have been hit, poor people, another chernobyl if the cooling system of the reactor failed, luckily it didn't happened
atm i haven't seen reports of deceases caused by the impact, but it seems that smaller parts of it did touched ground and some smaller craters were found in the area
the panic should have incredible, probably some believed that a terrorist attack was happening, another that it was a nuclear icbm and the rest that it wasn't 2012, it was 2013 the end of the world
i hope most people could fix roofs, windows and similar stuff, it is night already there, really cold night
