This morning's quake in Nepal and location of user reports of it
A moderately strong earthquake hit Nepal this morning at 5:19 am local time (which is 5 hours 45 minutes ahead of GMT). According to various agencies, the quake had a magnitude between 4.9 and 6.0 and struck approx. 60 km NE of the capital Kathmandu in the Sindhupalchok district.
The quake was widely felt within nearby areas and the capital where thousands felt a short shake, although many people left their houses in fear of stronger quakes, remembering the deadly magnitude 7.8 earthquake 5 years ago on 25 April 2015, which had hit 100 km to the west of today's tremor, killing nearly 9,000 people and injuring nearly 22,000. Local newspaper reported that one house in the epicenter area collapsed and one person was injured.
The area of the earthquake's epicenter had recently suffered from a series of devastating landslides which were caused by heavy monsoon rains and killed several people. The new quake and aftershocks of it could further destabilize slopes, which could in turn lead to more landslides in the near future, authorities warn.
