Just less than three weeks ago, a powerful 7.8 Richter Scale earthquake struck the impoverished nation of Nepal, killing over 8,000 lives (latest update). Another 7.3 Richter Scale earthquake reportedly hit again on Tuesday, 12th May and according to CNN, at least 39 people have been confirmed dead with thousands injured. The United States Geological Survey which is monitoring the region for seismic activities, said that the epicenter of the earthquake is about 54 miles east of the capital, Katmandu.
The earthquake has sent many weary residents of the capital scurrying back to the streets again amid falling bricks and building materials. The second tremor was powerful enough that it was felt in Mumbai, India, where residents noticed that high-rise buildings were swaying and the jolts felt by many people there.
