A 7.9-magnitude earthquake has struck Nepal and India, killing at least two people. The most severe damage was seen in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, where buildings collapsed, reportedly causing numerous injuries.

Shortly after the earthquake, the USGS raised the initial 7.5-magnitude of the quake to 7.9.

It occurred 33km east of Lamjung District and 80km northwest of Kathmandu, which has a population of about 1 million. The quake was at a depth of 31km.

Everyone is out in the streets of Kathmandu and people are rushing to hospitals, local media reported.

Reuters witness said a child has been killed in a town near Kathmandu when a statue fell in a park. A 15-year-old girl also reportedly died in India after the tremor brought a house wall down.

 

 

 

Locals on Twitter post numerous photos of apparent damage in Kathmandu and say there have been human losses following the earthquake. No official confirmation from the authorities has been released yet.

The historic Dharahara (Bhimsen) Tower, dating back to 1832, has reportedly collapsed in Kathmandu, said witnesses. The 62-meter-high monument was a part of Architecture of Kathmandu recognized by UNESCO.

According to witnesses at least one body was removed from the tower and a second lay further up the road. About 50 people are now being trapped inside the collapsed tower, Nepal media reported.

Some tremors were reportedly felt in some cities in eastern and northern India, including the capital, New Delhi, said JL Gautam, Head Operations Seismology of Indian Meteorological Department (IMD).

People were seen running from their houses after the buildings shook for several minutes in Delhi and parts of the National Capital Region.

“News has come in about an earthquake in Nepal. Several parts of India also experienced tremors,” Indian PM Narendra Modi tweeted.

Also tremors were felt in the cities of Patna, Lucknow, Kolkata, Jaipur and Chandigarh.
