On April 25th at 11:56 am Local time, an Earthquake of 7.8 M occurred in Nepal with it's epicentre approximately 34 Kms east-southeast of Lamjung, Nepal, lasting about 50 seconds. The second major Earthquake recurred at 6.6 M the next day about 65 Kms from Kathmandu causing a lot of havoc in the area. The total number of deaths in Nepal is almost 7000 and the number of injured is about 14000 people, out of which about 1000 people have died in the Kathmandu valley and the rest are from around the surrounding districts of the epicentre. Hundreds of thousands of houses were destroyed rendering people homeless with entire villages flattened across many districts of the country. It was the most powerful disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal-Bihar Earthquake. Some causalities have also been reported in the adjoining areas of India, China and Bangladesh. The Earthquake also triggered an Avalanche on Mount Everest killing at least 19 people making it the deadliest event on the mountain. It also triggered another Avalanche in the Langtang area where 250 people are missing now. With multiple aftershocks being felt in the past one week, Nepal is vulnerable to a lot more disasters like Landslides and Avalanches. The true extent of the damage from the earthquake is still unknown as reports keep filtering in from remote areas, some of which remain entirely cut off. The U.N. says the quake affected 8.1 million people - more than a quarter of Nepal's 28 million people.
