Nepal's Killer Earthquake

  At 6:14am on April 25, 2015 Nepal was rocked by the a 7.9 magnitude earthquake! Its epicenter was plotted at 58 km from Bharatpur, Nepal. This was the largest earthquake to hit the area since the early 1900. The quake and aftershocks were so powerful that they could be felt in northern India, Bangladesh, Tibet/China and Pakistan. Overnight Kathmandu has been transformed into a city of tents, with thousands of residents exposed to the chilling rain. 
  CBS News correspondent Charlie D'agata interviewed World Vision's Deepesh Paul Thaka. He said was lucky to survive."I can tell you it was a very horrifying situation," he said. "We were barely able to make it outside the house. We held each other tight, just praying, witnessing the walls just outside our house collapsing." 
  KTLA reports that over 1800 are feared dead with many more unaccounted. The images of the devastation have flooded the Internet. The stories of the Nepalese people working together in an effort to find survivors are heartfelt.
  Volunteers will be needed to help with the search and rescue of trapped survivors. In addition, volunteers should contact the local Nepal Red Cross or health service to donate blood.
