Most recent Earthquake in Nepal

Earthquake of 6.8 Richter scale was taken place in Border of Nepal and Sikkim which was felt in many parts of Nepal, India and China too on sunday evening at 6:40 p.m. 

According to earthquake.usgs.gov, the epicenter of the quake was at the eastern Nepal bordering along with India at Sikkim . Nepal is situated on the border between two huge tectonic plates that have moved together over millions of years to form the Himalayas, geologists say.

The quake lasted over a mintue in the Capital. However, the exact duration of the quake has yet to be verified. The earthquake was supposed to be originated from 20.7 km deep down the earth crust. Normally, earthquake couldn't harm to much in the parts of western and central part of nepal and india but damaged some lifes and residences at eastern parts around the places of Sikkim. The earthquake was felt in Kathmandu valley as well but it was not that violent. The people of India in the western part like Delhi and Rajas-than too felt the shaken of earth. Mainly the earthquake was felt hard in the Sikkim and himalayas part of Nepal in east.

But the bad news is that at least five persons have died-- two from Dharan and three from the Capital. Initial reports confirmed, three persons have died and one injured when the wall of British Embassy in Lazimpat, Kathmandu, collapsed due to the quake.

*************************************************************************************************************************************  A heartfelt condolence to them, wish their soul would rest in peace in heaven. May god bless them and their families to overcome the death of their relatives.        ************************************************************************************************************************************

This was the most powerful quake to rock Nepal in 78 years. The last major earthquake to hit Nepal struck to the east of the capital in 1934. It measured 8.4 on the Richter scale and killed more than 8,500 people in Nepal and neighbouring India.
