  • Lainchaur, Kathmandu - It was like a blast, rather than ongoing shaking, then the earthquake alarms went off. Usually the earthquake alarms go off first.
  • Lalitpur - This one felt like a blast from underneath with light shaking afterwards. I am surprised to read that it was only 4.5 - it felt stronger.

    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged.
