Latest on Nepal Earthquake and The Quake to Strike East Coast of US

At least 3,617 people are now known to have died in a massive earthquake which hit Nepal on Saturday, police say.

More than 6,500 people have been injured, according to the National Emergency Operation Centre.

Dozens of people are also reported to have been killed in neighbouring China and India.

More than 200 climbers have been rescued around Mount Everest, which was struck by deadly avalanches in the 7.8-magnitude quake.

Vast tent cities have sprung up in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, for those displaced or afraid to return to their homes as strong aftershocks continued. Thousands spent Sunday night – their second night – outside.

Officials have warned that the number of casualties could rise as rescue teams reach remote mountainous areas of western Nepal.

Last week, I experienced a tremor or earthquake that was so real that morning I looked up on the web any signs of a small earthquake in Philadelphia. But the only one I read about was the earthquake that hit the east coast on August 2011.

Light of Mary reported on April 26, 2015 about an east coast earthquake.

“My children, pray, the east coast of the US will be shaken.”

Also, she said about Nepal, “pray for Nepal, brothers need you.”
