Nearly 100 Aftershocks Hit Nepal since Saturday’s Earthquake

KATHMANDU – In the aftermath of the 7.8-magnitutde earthquake that ravaged Nepal on Saturday, roughly 100 aftershocks have hit the region, wreaking more havoc in terms of damage and human life.

As of late Tuesday afternoon, the Nepali National Seismological Center counted 96 aftershocks with intensities ranging between 4 and 6, while two others registered above 6, according to Nepal’s national news agency.

The latest tremors detected on Monday night and early Tuesday measured 4.4 and 4.9 on the Richter scale.

Rescue efforts continue to face challenges due to poor weather conditions, impaired communications, and the country’s general lack of readiness to respond to such a disaster, while time is ticking to recover survivors from the rubble.

Tuesday afternoon’s official death count calculated 4,358 fatalities throughout the disaster, while another 8,174 people have been injured, figures that seem to be leveling out after sharp surges in the two days following the disaster.
