A new fall has just occurred in Poland: a hammer!
Here is some information about the circumstances of the fall:
The meteorite fell on 30 April 2011 at 6 a.m. in Soltmany village, near the
town of Gizycko. The ~1kg stone hit the roof of a building and was
discovered broken into a few pieces. This information about the fall
comes from a Mr. Roman who called Andrzej Pilski from Frombork
Astronomical Observatory. Andrzej Pilski immediately asked Woreczko
and Wadi to go to the fall location, take photos, and ask eyewitnesses
for reports, as well as to see the stone and obtain a sample for
analysis.
The classification will be done by professor T. Przylibski from the
Wroclaw University of Technology. Frombork Observatory wants to buy
meteorite for their museum.
Best regards

Update! Wikipedia entry (story and more photos) in Polish.

Sołtmany- Wreszcie mamy nowy polski spadek!
30 kwietnia 2011 roku o godzinie 6.06 rano w okolicy Giżycka, we wsi Sołtmany, poczta Kruklanki spadł meteoryt. Leciał niemal pionowo, przebił dach w budynku gospodarczym, czyli klasyczny hammer. Jest to również pierwszy w tym roku spadek na świecie!
Piękny lekko orientowany okaz przebił eternit, wybił dziurę w deskach dachu i z wielkim impetem częściowo roztrzaskał się na betonowym schodku. Okaz spadał z olbrzymią prędkością, w grubych deskach wybił dziurę, ale ich nie połamał. Gdyby nie uderzenienie w dach i związane z tym wyhamowanie jego impetu, zapewne roztrzaskałby się na setki małych fragmentów.
Według wstępnych oględzin jest to chondryt zwyczajny. Profesor Tadeusz Przylibski z Politechniki Wrocławskiej rozpoczął proces klasyfikacji meteorytu, po sklasyfikowaniu meteoryt Sołtmany zostanie zgłoszony do Meteoritical Bulletin. ... (more)

I heard a very powerful explosion at about 16:30 local time on April 30 at my location in Norway. My location is about 62.2N 6.2E. Probably the loudest explosion I have heard anytime. Doubt very much it was fireworks. I was inside at the time with all doors and windows shut. I felt the pressure of the shock wave on the window pane about a half second before the sound! I saw people looking up in the sky afterwards. My neighbour said he thought it was serious car crash near by. I contacted the police a few days afterwards. They say they had no reports or explanation.
I suspect there could be a connection to the fall in Polen. Any one else having heard loud explosions in Northern Europe on this day?
