Bern, Switzerland [CD EUDNews, ADRA Nepal]. May 12, 2015.

A new powerful earthquake convulsed the traumatized nation of Nepal on Tuesday, leveling buildings already damaged by the devastating quake that killed thousands of people less than three weeks ago.

The magnitude 7.3 earthquake Tuesday was centered in a remote area of eastern Nepal, near the border with China. It struck at a depth of about 15 kilometers (9 miles), the U.S. Geological Survey said, slightly revising its earlier estimates.

The earthquake shook a country still picking up the pieces from the magnitude 7.8 quake that hit central Nepal on April 25, killing more than 8,000 people.

ADRA staff are okay, and are working from outside. We are expecting further damages to already vulnerable villages. We will provide more information as we get it.
