Nepal Earthquake: Death Toll Climbs to 7,365

Posted by feww on May 4, 2015

Deadly quake affects 8m Nepalese

Death toll in Nepal’s April 25 earthquake has climbed to 7,365 with at least 14,366 others injured, said the Ministry of Home Affairs on Monday.

Meantime, the police and local volunteers found 115 bodies thought to be trekkers and villagers who were buried in snow and ice after the devastating earthquake and strong aftershocks triggered multiple avalanches.

The bodies were recovered from the Langtang village, about 60 kilometers north of the capital, Kathmandu, over the weekend. The entire village, with up to 60 guesthouses, was razed by an avalanche, officials said.

The avalanches have also damaged the routes on Mt Everest making it “almost impossible” to climb the mountain this season.

The deadly quake has affected about 8 million people (Nepal has a population of 28 million), destroying or damaging more than 600,000 houses across the country, according to the latest figures released by the UN/ Nepalese officials.

The quake has destroyed up to 90 per cent of the houses in Gorkha and Sindupalchowk districts, said a UN report.

“Across large parts of Dhading, Dolakha, Rasuwa and Nuwakot districts, more than 80 percent of houses have been flattened.”

The worst affected areas are the 13 districts of Bhaktapur, Dolakha, Dhading, Gorkha, Kabhrepalanchowk, Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Makawanpur, Nuwakot, Ramechhap, Rasuwa, Sindhuli and Sindhupalchowk; however, damage has also been reported in Kavre, Okhaldhunga and Solukhumbu districts.
