Nepal Earthquake aftermath by Simon de Trey-White
29th April 2015, near Kathmandu, Nepal. View of an irreparably earthquake-damaged house and a makeshift shelter that the owners have had to construct to live in next to it, on the 29th April 2015, Sumara village, near Kathmandu, Nepal. This is a scene repeated across rural Nepal as its unsafe to enter the (mainly) mud-brick buildings that could collapse at any time.
An earthquake with magnitude 7.8 occurred near Lamjung, Nepal, 50 miles northeast of the capital Kathmandu at 06:11:26 UTC on Apr 25, 2015. The capital has seen considerable devastation including the nine-story Dharahara Tower, one of Kathmandu's landmarks built by Nepal's royal rulers as a watchtower in the 1800s and a UNESCO-recognised historical monument. It was reduced to rubble and there were reports of people trapped. Portions of historic buildings in the World Heritage gazetted site of Patan have also been destroyed as well as many buildings in the old city.
