Nepal's Earthquake


A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on November 4, 2023, killing at least 133 people. The epicenter of the quake was in the Jajarkot district, about 200 kilometers west of Kathmandu. The quake was felt across Nepal and in neighboring India.

The earthquake caused widespread damage, with hundreds of houses and buildings collapsing. Many people spent the night out in the open for fear of aftershocks and damage to their homes.

Rescue workers are still searching for survivors and providing aid to those affected by the quake. The Nepalese government has appealed for international assistance to help with the relief effort.

The earthquake is the strongest to hit Nepal since 2015, when a 7.8 magnitude quake killed nearly 9,000 people and injured over 22,000. Nepal is located in a seismically active region and is prone to earthquakes.
