6.4-Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Nepal, Causing Widespread Damage

New Delhi: A magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday, killing at least 128 people and injuring dozens more. The epicenter of the quake was in the Jajarkot district, about 500 kilometers west of the capital, Kathmandu. The tremors were felt across Nepal and in neighboring India, as far away as New Delhi.

The earthquake caused widespread damage in Jajarkot and other affected districts, with many houses and buildings collapsing. Rescue and relief teams have been deployed to the affected areas, but the remote location and difficult terrain are hampering their efforts.

The Nepalese government has appealed for international assistance to help with the relief and rehabilitation efforts.

The earthquake is the latest in a series of natural disasters that have hit Nepal in recent years. In 2015, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake killed nearly 9,000 people and caused widespread damage. In 2017, a devastating monsoon season killed over 1,200 people and displaced millions more.

Nepal is located in a seismically active region, and earthquakes are common. The country is also vulnerable to other natural disasters, such as floods and landslides.

International Aid Pours In to Nepal After Deadly Earthquake

Countries from around the world have offered aid to Nepal in the wake of the deadly earthquake. India was one of the first to respond, sending search and rescue teams and medical supplies. China has also offered assistance, as have the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union.

The United Nations has also launched an appeal for $50 million to help with the relief and rehabilitation efforts. The money will be used to provide food, water, shelter, and medical care to those affected by the earthquake.
