A super powerful 6.7 magnitude aftershock struck the Kathmandu region in Nepal a day after the worst recorded earthquake to hit Nepal since the 1930s.

The 7.9 earthquake has already claimed 2500 lives with hundreds still being rescued and trapped in rubble.

“The aftershocks keep coming … so people don’t know what to expect,” said Sanjay Karki, “All the open spaces in Kathmandu are packed with people who are camping outdoors. When the aftershocks come you cannot imagine the fear. You can hear women and children crying.”

Thousands of people are spending the night in open fields and away from buildings as aftershocks are expected to strike. Yesterday, an aftershock struck at magnitude 5.3 just 30 miles east of Kathmandu. .

The powerful earthquake caused an Avalance at Mt. Everest killing 18 people and injuring 41.
