CHELYABINSK, Russia (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Cleanup crews in Russia are making headway following a meteorite explosion on Friday.

Leaders in Chelyabinsk say 60 percent of the city's broken windows have been replaced.

Friday's explosion, estimated to be equivalent to several atomic bombs, shattered glass in more than 4,000 buildings in Chelyabinsk and the surrounding region, leaving residents vulnerable in temperatures well below freezing.

Emergency responders say about 1,200 people were injured, mostly by broken glass, with 40 still hospitalized.

City leaders estimate the cost of damage to be $33 million.
