A 7.3 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Nepal, killing dozens. The earthquake occurred Tuesday centered about 47 miles east-northeast of the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu near the border of Tibet. It was followed by 10 aftershocks, the strongest of which was magnitude 6.3, occurring a half hour after the initial 7.3 magnitude.
UNICEF has been in the area providing aide to children and families. “The shaking seemed to go on and on,” Rose Foley, a UNICEF official based in Kathmandu, said. “It felt like being on a boat in rough seas.” USGS has issued an aftershock advisory telling residents to leave damaged buildings.
