space.com offers Dead NASA Satellite Falling From Space, But When & Where? | The Facts About NASA's Doomed UARS Satellite for News.
An out-of-control NASA satellite that is dead in space will plunge back to Earth in the next few weeks, but exactly when and where the spacecraft will fall are still a mystery, space agency and military officials said today.

The spacecraft, called the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, is about the size of a school bus and is expected to re-enter Earth's atmosphere sometime between late September and early October, NASA officials said. The nearly 12,500-pound (5,668-kilogram) satellite will fall over a stretch of land more than 500 miles (804 kilometers) long somewhere between northern Canada and southern South America.

Seriously, how does NASA say in one breath "There is a 1-in-3,200 chance that a person somewhere on Earth could be hit by falling satellite debris" and in the next "So those are actually very, very low odds that anyone is going to be struck by a piece of debris". I'd like to see a lottery jackpot with those odds!

Maybe the fact that "nasa" means "screw" in Korean has something to do with it.
