Nepal Earthquake

Yesterday a huge earthquake hit Nepal. It was the strongest earthquake for more than 80 years. Many Nepalis have feared for years that a big quake was coming, their worst fears now confirmed. News organizations are reporting over 2000 fatalities, but that number is sure to rise. Hundreds of buildings have collapsed and many more have been so badly damaged that they will need to be razed. Climbers on Everest and other mountains have been hit by avalanches caused by the earthquake. There are many fatalities being reported from Everest basecamp and many more injured. This is a terrible story and we send our thoughts and prayers to the region for everyone involved.
