Earthquake News From Mount Everest, where we are working with kind and friendly local Tibetan and Nepali people to help adapt to the changes brought by an earthquake which struck the Everest region on 25 April, lasting about 40 seconds. This was the largest earthquake for 80 years. About 2 in 10,000 have tragically passed away in collapsed antique farm style buildings made of mud and stone with no support nor concrete. In the high mountains, ice shook loose in a few places, and unluckily, basecamp was hit. As the tremor came at noon, most everyone was up and around and able to run away. However, some did not make it. We send our deepest condolences to the victims families and friends. Lets work together to rebuild Nepal.
Stay informed about the rebuilding effort at www.EverestEarthquakeNews.org .
