Nepal Earthquake

A devastating earthquake struck Nepal on November 3, 2023. While the Richter scale measurements have been ambiguous – with some sources reporting it as 5.7 and others as 6.4 – the human cost is immediately clear: so far, 150 people have died and 338 are injured. The quake was centred in Jajarkot, Karnali Province, but the 159 aftershocks were felt as far as Kathmandu and Delhi, India. Over 4000 homes have been damaged, and some government emergency response activities have been set back by landslides in the affected areas.
