A meteor appears to have fallen to Earth over western Cuba Friday afternoon.

Numerous sightings of a meteor were received from the Florida Keys, and fragments have reportedly been found in Cuba.


Details are still sketchy at this time. But, it appears that the meteor exploded near or over the town of Vinales in western Cuba.

The explosion blew out windows and may have caused other damage. There have have been no reports of injuries.
