Aftermath of Nepal Quake in Full Display After Two Days #PrayforNepal
Rameshwor Dangal, head of Nepal’s disaster management agency fears that thousands are still under the earthquake rubbles two days after devastating ground tremors hit Nepal’s capital. The massive tectonic movement measured at 7.8 magnitude now claimed more than 3000 lives and injured at least 7,000 more.
Dangal was hopeful however as volunteers and government rescuers are slowly gaining steam on rescue efforts as the weather conditions continue to improve on most parts of Nepal. Rescue operations have resumed on the mountainous parts of Western Nepal after landslides due to rains stalled country’s rescue efforts.
Rescue and assessment teams have also been delegated on neighboring countries of China, Bhutan, Bangladesh and India.
Donation campaigns and international aid of same earth shattering proportions have been arriving since Sunday. The country’s navy and customs will observe light security on duly identified donation cargo ships. Airstrips that have taken less damage have been identified as landing spots for foreign aids.
The 14th Dalai Lama has also made an appeal to help those who have been displaced by the natural calamity. Nepalese Prime Minister, Sushil Koirala has made commitments to allocate proper power, water and food rations on the all of Nepal.
This earthquake is observed to be the most devastating land movement Nepal has ever experienced in the past 80 years. Aftershocks continue to occur, with a 6.7-magnitude tremor, 70 kms off of Kathmandu being the strongest today.
