At least 157 people are believed to have been killed in the earthquake. The death toll from the midnight earthquake that hit the western part of Nepal has risen to 157, and more than 300 people have been injured in the incident. Our local correspondent, who has reached the worst-hit area recently, told us that people are staying outside their homes in cold weather as their houses are either cracked or collapsed. They complain of a lack of tents for shelters and inadequate relief materials. Local authorities have urged people to stay outside for at least 24 hours as they are reporting minor jolts and aftershocks in the areas. Officials are worried about distributing relief materials and rescue efforts as it is turning dark in Nepal and electricity facilities in many affected areas are being cut off.

Some among the more than 300 injured have been airlifted to urban facilities, including in Kathmandu. Nepal’s Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, who witnessed the worst-hit area this morning, has said he will announce more relief and rescue materials for the victims. The government is also expected to decide whether to accept foreign aid for the relief of the quake victims, as Nepal’s neighbors India and China are proposing relief and humanitarian aid for the quake victims.

People in Nepal are still afraid of aftershocks and major jolts in the areas, and they are still in a panic situation, according to our local correspondent. And just while you’ve been talking, we’ve just been seeing pictures of the rubble, the devastation in the area. Just talk us through the area. How common are more quakes like this in that region?

Nepal lies in the quake-prone areas. It is in the seismic belt between India and China, so minor quakes are common in Nepal. A 6.3 magnitude quake damaged many houses last month in the nearby area, and after the 2015 7.8 magnitude earthquake that killed nearly 9,000 people in Nepal, many aftershocks are still being reported. Aftershocks were even reported last month. Nepal has observed many quakes, small jolts of more than five or full magnitude, even in recent months. Seismologists have warned about a major earthquake in the western part of the country as it has been quite a long period in that area to release the power.
