Nepal Hit By A Second 7.4 Magnitude Quake

Nepal is hit on Tuesday by another powerful earthquake.
Reports of at least four killed in Chautara.
The death toll from last month’s earthquake rose past 8,000 people on Monday, with another 16,000 injured.
The 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck around noon local time on April 26. A strong tremor measuring 6.7 struck the following day.
The epicenter was an area between the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu, and the city of Pokhara.
The violent tremors triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, killing at least 19 people on the mountain.
The Nepalese government has appealed for international aid, and relief workers said they are in need of supplies, food, and water.
The earthquake also destroyed historic buildings and other structures.
