  1. Nature of the Disaster: Earthquake
  1. The affected area: A second major earthquake occurred in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nepal on 12 May 2015 at 12:50 pm local time (7:05 am UTC) with a moment magnitude of 7.3, 18 km (11 mi) southeast of Kodari. The epicenter was on the border of Dolakha and Sindhupalchowk, two districts of Nepal. This earthquake occurred on the same fault as the larger magnitude 7.8 earthquake of 25 April, but further east than the original quake. As such, it is considered to be an aftershock of the 25 April quake. It struck at a depth of 18.5 kilometers (11.5 mi). Shaking was felt in northern parts of India including BiharUttar Pradesh and West Bengal. Tremors were felt as far as about 2400 kilometers away from the epicenter in Chennai. Minutes later, another 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal with its epicenter in Ramechhap, east of Kathmandu. The earthquake was felt in BangladeshChina and many other states in India. The impact of these tremors was felt even 1,000 kilometres away in the Indian capital New Delhi, where buildings shook and office workers evacuated. After the massive and devastating earthquake of April 25, April 26, May 12 and several aftershock these earthquake Sindhupalchowk has been identified as a very vulnerable district of Nepal.
