17 days after a deadly 7.9-magnitude earthquake devastated Nepal and parts of India that left more than 8,000 dead, more earthquakes struck Nepal on May 12 killing over 60 and injuring over 2000.
The US Geological Survey said the 7.3-earthquake, which shook Nepal at 12.50pm (local time) was centred about 76 km east of Kathmandu. That was followed by a 6.3-magnitude quake 30 minutes later and a number of major aftershocks.
Nepal’s Parliamentarians fled as the building shook when Communist Party of Nepal representative Vishnu Poudel was speaking on the rehabilitation of the survivors of the April 25 earthquake.
Photographers traveling with a Delaware medical team for relief efforts captured the second quake on camera.
The Canadian Red Cross and the Norwegian Red Cross have setup a field hospital and are providing assistance to the people injured. Before Tuesday’s earthquakes, the UN had been asking for $423 million in donations to help rebuild Nepal. As of Monday, only 10% of that had been received. If you want to donate to the relief fund, please go to The Red Cross’ website for details.
