Nepal May Experience Another Earthquake, Death Toll Rises

As it is now, the people of Nepal are going through absolute hell. Some are buried under their wrecked homes, nearly 3,900 have died (and well over 6,000 injured), and hospitals are over capacity. As is the case with many large disasters, death tolls are not confirmed for a very long time. This may have contributed to the sharp rise of Nepal’s Earthquake death toll. In addition to that, aftershocks are costing people their lives, raising the death toll further. The quake measured 7.8 on the Richter scale, which is catastrophic. To add insult to injury, another stronger earthquake may take place.

‘We are appealing for tents, dry goods, blankets, mattresses, and 80 different medicines … that we desperately need now,’ he told reporters. ‘We don’t have the helicopters that we need or the expertise to rescue the people trapped.’, said Lila Mani Poudyal, the government’s chief secretary and the rescue coordinator.
