Samedi. LE NEPAL FRAPPE PAR UN TREMBLEMENT DE TERRE. PRES DE KATMANDOU. PRES DE 1000 MORTS ET PROBABLEMENT PLUS DANS LES HEURES QUI VONT SUIVRE. C’est le plus fort tremblement de terre depuis 1930, dit un officiel.
Kathmandu, Nepal (CNN) – A 7.8 magnitude earthquake centered less than 50 miles from Kathmandu rocked Nepal with devastating force early Saturday, killing at least 806 people — and probably more — in Nepal’s capital city, authorities said.
Afterwards, historic buildings in Kathmandu lay in rubble. The injured wound up being treated outside hospitals in chaotic scenes. Residents, terrorized by a seemingly endless series of aftershocks, huddled outdoors for safety.
The death toll was reported by Nepal’s Ministry of Home Affairs. But given that the rescue effort is still in its early stages and that people in outlying areas may well have been affected, as well, it seems probable the number will rise.
