Nepal's Second Earthquake

Most International News Media Outlets are reporting the newest series of earthquakes rumbling through eastern Kathmandu on May 12, 2015.  The first quake, a 7.3 whopper, reportedly occurred at 12.35 p.m. (local time) in the town of Namche Bazar. According to the National Geologic Service, this is the second major earthquake, within the past three weeks directly affecting Nepal, 

According to  Google, the village of Namche Bazar is near to Tibet and resides about 75 kilometers east of Kathmandu.   The village is also in proximity to Mount Everest. Mount Everest was hit by the major aftershocks, which unleashed the potential energy of the Himalayan Avalanche.   One of the aftershocks measured as high as 6.3 on the Richter scale.  The tremors were felt in neighboring India, and China too. 








Dr. Laxmi Dhakal, Nepali Home Ministry spokesperson, said that the latest series /aftershocks has killed more than one hundred men, women, and children and has injured an additional two thousand Nepalese.  The Nepalese were not the only people affect by the latest quake. CNN reports that search efforts are underway to locate the whereabouts of a  US Marine helicopter which was ferrying six U.S. Marines and two Nepalese soldiers.

We are still receiving photos and images of the destruction in Nepal from our social media friends. Volunteers from all over the world are Enroute to assist you. Hold on!
