Yes, I am afraid it could be shockingly higher, possibly upwards of 100k is not out of the realm of possibilities

Thankfully it was during the day rather than at night. If it had been at night it would surly be worse but the data indicates that the cost of lives could be very extreme

Kathmandu, Nepal ranked first in GeoHazards International's study of 'Cities Vulnerable to Earthquake', followed by Istanbul, Turkey; Delhi, India; Quito, Ecuador; Manila, Philippines; and Islambad/Rawalpindi, Pakistan--all of which could expect fatalities in the tens of thousands if disaster struck. The only first-world cities on the list were in Japan: Tokyo, Nagoya and Kobe.

1. Kathmandu, Nepal: 69,000

A study by GeoHazards International predicted a 6.0 earthquake would kill approximately 69,000 people this growing city of about 1 million, the most densely populated district of Nepal.





And this quake is much larger .
This is truly horrifying .

Also note the second picture from this article that shows the map of the region and previous quakes. The 8.0 quake in 1934 claimed over 10,000 lives in Kathmandu and the epicenter is much further away from Kathmandu than the 7.9 that hit today.

Not sure how they get "God-Like". It's all relative on your beliefs, I guess. But that for sure is a giant person. Looks creepy. The face is very defined, neck, so are the shoulders, torso and arms. Looks like a belly too.

Seems like each time there is a major uptick in quakes, these sites go down a few days before and stay down until it is over. I can remember it happening at least 3 times and once it again, they are down when it is shaking. Coincidence?

I thought they couldn't predict EQ's? Hmmmmm????

Nepal: Red Cross on the front lines responding to massive quake

Roads have been blocked and we're unable to reach local Red Cross branches close to the epicentre of #NepalQuake:


The earthquake has caused buildings to collapse in Kathmandu and hundreds of people are reported to have been killed. The main hospitals in the capital continue to function but are stretched to capacity and it is not clear the extent to which essential services have been disrupted. Strong aftershocks continue to be felt, causing a risk of further damage to many buildings and triggering concern and fear among the local population, many of whom are afraid to return to their homes.

“I was in my 5th floor apartment and the shaking was extremely violent... we could see dust rising from the hills around the city and luckily we were able to evacuate," said a British Red Cross staff working with the Nepal Red Cross Society in Kathmandu.

The epicentre of the quake was 80 kilometres from Kathmandu in Lamjung, Gorkha district, which suffered significant damage.

“We are extremely concerned about the fate of communities in towns and villages in rural areas closer to the epicentre,” said Jagan Chapagain, IFRC Director for Asia Pacific. “Roads have been damaged or blocked by landslides and communication lines are down preventing us from reaching local Red Cross branches to get accurate information. We anticipate that there will be considerable destruction and loss of life.”

The IFRC is mobilizing resources from its hubs in New Delhi, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok and is releasing funds from its Disaster Response Emergency Fund to support the initial emergency response.

Nepal’s National Society for Earthquake Technology had previously estimated that a large-scale earthquake in mid-Nepal could displace over 1.8 million people, kill over 100,000 and injure a further 300,000.

“We do not yet know the scope of the damage, but this is could be one of the deadliest and most devastating earthquakes since the 1934 tremor which devastated Nepal and Bihar,” said Chapagain. “People will need considerable support including food, water, medical care and emergency shelter.”

Morning. I was up early this morning and saw some of the 1st news on CNN. I was going to get on here. But when it's like 1am my time, I know most of you are sleeping. But I should have. Oh well.

It funny. The neighborhood birds are much more active then usual, and a lot more out then usual too. It's a fairly nice morning. Breezy, party clouys with plenty of sun breaks. But it's like the birds know the earth is active. I've seen them all this morning, and still hear them. Crows, Robins, Blue Jay, Starlings, Sparrows, even the honking of Geese. This is all from inside. I did crack a window, but still, birds are being noisy.

This guy woke me up bright and early at like 7:30. I was paitnet, and sat by the window through a whole cup of coffee.

It seems that a few seconds before a quake hits, that ALL the birds fly out of the trees. I have noticed this on all of the quake vids taken outdoors. I guess this is the only real warning for people, is when the birds take off, you got to take cover.
