The epicenter was located near Helambu Tarkeyghyang. No preliminary damage or injuries have been reported. Sindhupalchowk was badly devastated by April 2015 earthquake. We are worried about the earthquake affected people currently living in temporary tents in this brutal winter.

We expect it as an aftershock with epicenter in Sindhupalchowk. Following the shaking intensity, the magnitude would be around 5.2. Official data yet to come.

Tremor was strongly felt in Sindhupalchowk, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur, Kathmandu and neighbouring districts of Nepal. People from Pokhara are also reporting the tremor.

Update 10:10 pm

The tremor was strong enough to send people out of their houses. Most of houses and building in Kathmandu valley have been evacuated. The epicenter isn't yet know. Nepal Seismological Center is down currently.

Important thing is where the current earthquake is a fresh earthquake or an aftershock of Gorkha earthquake.
