According to the news report, it had exploded some miles (perhaps 15 miles from Phages), and if the "intensity" of the sonic wave had declined, the
effects on contact with nearby infrastructure damage had been reported to be a mere *few* millions US dollars as result.
All in all it seems apparent, despite it's massive energy release, it's real effects on casualties is what matters, statistically speaking.
Since, it barely caused any significant loss of lives, I bet it is a none event then, but was interesting to have known the effects of a meteor of
that magnitude and of course the lack of warning from authorities, from what may have been a potential threat for citizens in the vicinity.
