Four earthquakes hit devastated Nepal in quick succession today, sending terrified residents running into the streets of the capital Kathmandu; intense tremors were felt throughout northern India, including Delhi at around 24:35.
Four people are reported dead in the Nepal town of Chautara, Sindhupalchowk district capital, which suffered the heaviest death toll from last month’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake that killed 8,000 people on 25 April 2015.
At least 32 people have died in Nepal due to the recent earthquake in recent times Tuesday afternoon, according the BBC report.
In addition to the deaths, at least another 1,006 people in the country that were injured, according to Nepalese government information and communications ministry spokesman Minendra Rijal.
Three more people were killed in a wall collapse in the state of Bihar in India, the neighboring Nepal, said Sunil Kumar, a senior disaster management at the senior Indian state.
The earthquake shook a country still picking up the pieces of the magnitude 7.8 earthquake that struck central Nepal on April 25, killing more than 8,000 people.
