The Daily Moraine 2015 - Earthquake #225 April 2015

This is a very quick message.

There has been a large earthquake here in Nepal. Right now I am in Kathmandu as my communications at BC were not very good. There is extensive damage here and many have died.

I have heard from BC and apparently there has been a large avalanche off of Nuptse that has caused considerable damage to many camps and I understand that there are several injuries. Fortunately all of our team members and Sherpa staff are all OK. I understand that we are using our white pod tent as a medical centre. The weather is not very good so it is difficult to get helicopter assistance immediately.
