Disaster Situation

The 7.3-magnitude quake struck at 12:35 pm, some 47 miles east of Kathmandu, the US Geological Survey said, after a 7.8-magnitude quake on April 25 killed more than 8,000 people. Tuesday's quake was felt as far away as New Delhi, and officials said it caused buildings to collapse in Tibet, killing at least one person there. A second tremor of 6.3-magnitude struck Nepal around half an hour later, followed by yet more aftershocks, according to the U.S.Geological Survey.
