Nepal Earthquake Update – April 27, 2015

Posted by feww on April 27, 2015

Entire villages razed by earthquakes, 10,000 dead or injured,

The 7.8-magnitude quake, and its strong aftershocks, which also triggered deadly avalanches on Mt Everest, have killed about 3,500 people and left more than 6,500 injured, as of posting.

It’s feared that the earthquakes may have razed dozens of villages and destroyed entire communities throughout the country and beyond; however, full extent of the damage and final causality toll may not be known for days, possibly weeks, due to the remoteness of those areas in mountainous region.

“Villages like this are routinely affected by landslides, and it’s not uncommon for entire villages of 200, 300, up to 1,000 people to be completely buried by rock falls,” said a charity organizer.

Meantime, more aftershocks are expected to strike the region along the subduction zone where the Indian plate is sliding under the Eurasian plate (see map).
