6.0 earthquake in cali

Following the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit in April, another major earthquake has struck eastern Nepal, near Mount Everest. Current reports say at least 37 people have been killed and more than 1,000 injured. At least 17 have also died in India.

India’s home ministry said 16 people had been killed in the state of Bihar, and one more in Uttar Pradesh. Officials in China said one person was confirmed dead in Tibet. A spokesman for Nepal’s government told the BBC that 31 of the country’s 75 districts had been affected, while Prime Minister Sushil Koirala called for “courage and patience” and urged all those who had assisted Nepal since the last quake “to once again extend your helping hand.” They are saying this could add an additional $1 billion worth of reconstruction.

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone!
