A mild Earthquake was felt in Kathmandu some minutes back today (December 18, 2014/ Poush 3, 2071). The tremor was felt for around twenty seconds at 9:18 pm, and the aftershock is yet to happen as known from the experience. People around my neighborhood are outside their home, with their panic heads. Pahilopost reports that the earthquake was also felt in Jhapa, Morang, Dolakha and Dhankuta.
More details are yet to come for the magnitude of the quake, the epicenter and any physical destruction.
Kathmandu is one of the city with high earthquake risks due to the unplanned urban city and the little or no preparedness for such natural calamity.
