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.
