Nepal Hit By Another Powerful Earthquake


Another earthquake has sent people running out of buildings in Nepal’s capital Kathmandu.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) says it measured 7.3 in magnitude, and struck near the base camp of Mount Everest.

More than 8,000 people were killed when an earthquake hit the country last month.

Ross O’Sullivan is in Nepal leading Concern’s response to the disaster.

He says they got a real shock this morning.

“In the last 40 minutes or so there was a fairly significant quake” he said.

“We’ve experienced tremors almost daily, nightly even – just a slight feeling under-foot pretty much, there hasn’t been anything that really had people running out of doors”.

“However, this one was a biggie” he added.
