http://Magnitude 7.9 Quake Hits Nepal; Heavy Damage

The epicenter was 80 kilometers northwest of Kathmandu. The Kathmandu Valley is densely populated with nearly 2.5 million, with the quality of buildings often poor.

An Associated Press reporter in Kathmandu said a wall in his compound collapsed and there was damage to nearby buildings.
The U.S. Geological Survey revised the magnitude from 7.5 to 7.9 and said the quake hit at 11:56 a.m. local time (0611 UTC) at Lamjung at a shallow depth of 11 kilometers.


So happy this did not hit in the dead of winter. Prayers for all.

The webcam is down at the base camp.

I too am wondering if it will loosen any remaining snow. I don't know the spring melt stage or if the danger of avalanches is completely past because of thawing. Lets hope so anyway.

Looks very bad. Lots of injuries and there will be many killed in this once the reports are all collected

Update 09:22 UTC : Reports are reaching us that the Base Camp of Mount Everest has been damaged seriously. Some people (number unsure have been killed – to be reconfirmed)



At least 150 people killed in Kathmandu, 1 in China, 10 in Pokhara, 2 at Mount Everest Base Camp and 11 in India (2 caused by mass panic)



Update 09:20 UTC : As many as 10 people were killed in Nepal’s picturesque Pokhara area. If we overlook the situation we can tell that at this moment we have certainty that at least 100 people were killed during this earthquake. This count has not 1 person from the direct epicenter area.
Update 09:19 UTC : IANS reports that a total of five people, including two children, were killed when buildings collapsed in different parts of Bihar following the earthquake. The two children of the same family died in a wall collapse in Bhagalpur. One person each were killed in Sitamarhi, Darbhanga and Vaishali.
Update 09:12 UTC : The earthquake cost coming out of Dr. James Daniells theoretical models goes up to 2.5 billion US$!
