Update 16:05 UTC : Villages in Sindhupalchok district are still waiting for help. Locals dug out 37 bodies.

Update 15:48 UTC : Drones Will Massively Speed Relief After Nepal Earthquake (Forbes article by Leo King) - ER believes that Drones will play an increasing and very important role in Relief and Rescue in the near future.
Excerpt of Leo King article
The use of unmanned drones will greatly speed relief efforts following the enormous earthquake in Nepal last week.
Global Medic, a Canadian charity that provides disaster response in the form of medical assistance, is flying drones over the affected areas in order to study and 3D map the worst hit zones. The information will be passed to rescue workers on the ground to show them exactly where to go.
Three of the drones made by Aeryon Labs will be flown by a dedicated pilot who is in Nepal. Global Medic said that drones will vastly speed their work, given that use of unmanned aircraft is difficult with the damage caused to existing airstrips and refueling facilities in the country.

Update 14:32 UTC : Detailed report about the April, 25, 2015 Mw=7.8 earthquake in Nepal. It is already one of the deadliest earthquakes of the 21st century! - Take a look into a detailed analysis of the Nepal Earthquake seismology and history, impact regarding losses and fatalities, recovery, shelter and much more.

Update 12:27 : We saw some peak in readers less than an hour ago and got messages from readers that there was an announcement in Kathmandu that an important earthquake would happen shortly. How is this possible ? In Taiwan people who are telling such nonsense are immediately jailed, so we have to repeat over and over again that :

NOBODY IN THE WORLD CAN PREDICT EARTHQUAKES

Exact Location, Magnitude and Time are NOT PREDICTABLE
In the aftermath of an earthquake be ALWAYS prepared for aftershocks, it is however
not possible to predict them in strength, time and location

Within 2 weeks after a massive main-shock stay as maximum as possible in open spaces

Update 10:33 UTC : Xinhua (China) had a conversation with 2 seismologists. It is a "must read" article! Those who followed our article from the very beginning will see only confirmation of what we have been reporting since the very beginning.

The huge losses caused by the magnitude-7.9 quake may be contributed to the quake itself, a shallow one that occurred on a "thrust fault," Randy Baldwin, geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey told Xinhua on Monday.
Besides that, poor seismic reliability of buildings in Nepal, one of the least developed countries, could add to the tragedy, he said.
Nepal is located along a fault where the India and Eurasian plates meet. "So you have a plate boundary and India is diving beneath the Eurasian plate," Baldwin said. "And this particular zone generates large earthquakes so that's why this quake is a large one," he explained.
It is a very seismically active area that set a history of producing large earthquakes in the past, he said.
Over the past century, there have been approximately five large damaging quakes along this particular fault zone, he said, adding the one that claimed over 8,000 lives in 1934 was the worst in the past 100 years.
Moreover, the shallow sediment under the capital of Kathmandu helps to amplify the motion, Peng Zhigang, associate professor of the Georgia Institute of Technology in United States, told Xinhua recently.
He also emphasized that the poor quake-resistance capacity of the buildings in Nepal contribute to heavy damage to life and property.
So far, more than 400,000 buildings have collapsed. At least 14 historic buildings have been destroyed or severely damaged, including 12 on the list of UNESCO World Heritages.
Some villages outside Kathmandu have been completely flattened, and roads have been damaged to many remote areas, according to local police.
Baldwin said "it's hard to" estimate the damage, as a lot of constructions throughout the region that were damaged or weakened in the main shock are susceptible to significant aftershocks, which could cause huge losses.
As for earthquake forecasting, Peng said the quake was a foregone conclusion, as Nepal's location on the boundary of Indian and Eurasian plates is well known, and the former is diving beneath the latter by four to five centimeters every year.
However, to accurately forecast the timing of the magnitude-7.9 quake or other major earthquakes is yet an impossible task for now, he said.
So before precise forecast comes true, to lift quake resistance capacity of constructions, strengthen science education among the public and set up a real-time warning system among other measures, he said, could help minimize casualties and property losses.

Update 10:29 UTC : Video - Conditions are far worse in Nepal's isolated Gorkha district, where the strong earthquake's epicenter lies. Rescuers are struggling to reach mountain villages.

Update 10:24 UTC : 200 tons garbage and rubble has been collected by the Kathmandu Municipality. 12000 liter Phenol is used for the sanitation in Kathmandu

Update 10:22 UTC : As this article gets longer every day, we had to archive part 4. Link to part 4 at the bottom of this ongoing article

Update 09:52 UTC : Tibet - Classes resume in tents in primary school of quake-hit Gyirong, Tibet after the M7.9 earthquake from last Saturday

Update 09:47 UTC : Airbus Defence and Space has acquired Pléiades satellites imagery to support the International Charter (Space and Major Disasters) and the Copernicus Emergency Management Service. The data acquired will assist in assessing the damage and help rescue organisations in the delivery of humanitarian aid.

Update 09:18 UTC : ESA-Copernicus satellite imagery - Interferogram over Kathmandu, Nepal, generated from two Sentinel-1A scans on 17 and 29 April 2015 – before and after the 25 April earthquake. Each ‘fringe’ of colour represents about 3 cm of deformation. The large amount of fringes indicates a large deformation pattern with ground motions of 1 m or more.

Screen Shot 2015-04-30 at 11.17.57

Update 09:12 UTC : ESA-Copernicus satellite imagery - Combining two Sentinel-1A radar scans from 17 and 29 April 2015, this interferogram shows changes on the ground that occurred during the 25 April earthquake that struck Nepal. An overall area of 120x100 km has moved – half of that uplifted and the other half, north of Kathmandu subsided. Vertical accuracy is a few cm.

Update 08:24 UTC : As we are always in search og good background articles, we found this article who is looking back to the Haiti earthquake. It puts us with our feet back on the ground and dims normal human emotion versus fact ratios.

Our focus on the organized rescue efforts was similarly misplaced. The constant media coverage and well-financed, specialized rescue teams created the impression in many viewers’ minds that large numbers of people were being saved by outside responders. In fact, according to a report by the French Defense Ministry’s Haiti mission, no more than 211 people were saved by all of the international search-and-rescue efforts combined, in a disaster in which hundreds of thousands were trapped.

Update 08:04 UTC : Nepal GoPro: Walking through devastated Kathmandu

Update 07:44 UTC : A lot of observers (like us) are surprised about the lack of aftershocks. Since more than 24 hours no +M4 event was noted in the broad rupture area. Although there is no proven aftershock pattern also USGS was expecting more aftershocks than we have seen so far. Aftershocks are a system within the earth to find a new balance after a major rupture. The main risk of the current relative calm is that people would start to believe that it is all over now. My friends in Kathmandu returned to their houses on day 3. Many people did so. If a major M7.0 or higher would strike the city at night, the damage and human misery is not to be overseen (depending on the location of the epicenter and the earthquake type)

Update 06:55 UTC : Roads in Kathmandu almost back to normal. Almost usual traffic & public vehicles. Amazing how quickly this city adjusts.

Update 06:54 : We have lowered the death toll again to the number which is published by the National Emergency Operation Centre. The 6000 for Nepal which we used from yesterday was based on the words of the Deputy Prime Minister Bam Dev Gautam who sais that "Over 6,000 bodies have so far been pulled out"


Update 18:00 UTC : OCHA made a flash calculation of the funds needed to fulfill the most urgent needs. the number 415 million US$!!!

Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 19.59.37

Update 17:00 UTC : Nepal apparently stopped counting the bodies it looks like. Since 24 hours 200 more which is hard to believe if we see the still to be removed rubble. IndiaToday stated the following quote a little earlier : "Over 6,000 bodies have so far been pulled out from under mounds of debris and rubble left by razed homes and buildings in Saturday's 7.9-magnitude temblor, Deputy Prime Minister Bam Dev Gautam said". Accordingly we will set the Nepal fatalities counter at 6,000 and unfortunately also that number will normally not be high enough.

Update 16:37 UTC : Life as it is after earthquakes in not so well organized countries
International aid workers frustrated about Nepali government’s delays (article Washington Post)
Dozens of international health-care professionals and emergency medical aid workers crammed into a small coordination office in Kathmandu on Wednesday looking for direction on how to assist in relief efforts after the devastating weekend earthquake.
“Nepal needs tents, as quickly as possible,” Padam Bahadur Chand, a senior health official, told them at the meeting.
As Chand made the appeal, however, the cargo site at the airport in the Nepali capital illustrated the bigger problem on the ground: a cripplingly slow response by the administration.

Update 15:24 UTC : Scary video captured by a CCTV camera along Tundikhel, the parade ground of Kathmandu

Update 15:00 UTC : Rescuers are still at work in Kathmandu as the sun sets on the third day after a deadly earthquake struck the country.

Update 14:30 UTC : Helicopters are reaching remote villages in the Gorkha district. A lot of damage to homes. Seriously injured people are taken to Kathmandu hospitals. Video is a snapshot of an Image Channel Television video

Update 14:40 UTC : Nepal police is arresting small store owners in Kathmandu who're inflating prices of daily goods.

Update 13:15 UTC : Villages still without help in Sindhupalchok after 5 days : Baruwa,Yangri,Gankharka,Sunchaur,Polgaung, Talegaun,Thalchok,Ribarma

Update 13:10 UTC : After losing everything some villagers in Gorkha were eating dead goats because there's no food. (via @AnupKaphle)

Update 13:09 UTC : Total number of dead bodies handed over to their families 4739

Update 12:49 UTC : Nepal says expeditions to Everest will continue despite earthquake destruction. 42 groups waiting at base camp.
ER comment: quiet unbelievable knowing the expected USGS aftershock pattern . Additionally the M6.7 had an epicenter in the direction of Mt Everest and the M5.1 earthquake who happened Monday near Siliguri is even closer. We know that expeditions bring in a lot of money for Nepal, but saying this 5 days after the mainshock is to our own opinion way too dangerous. Good to know is that the Chinese government has canceled all the spring Everest expeditions from their side.

Update 11:32 UTC : On a press conference the Nepal Emergency Central Operations have given some more details about their work :
- 3 helicopters sent to Rasuwa for rescue operation today
- 8 helicopters sent to Gorkha for rescue operation
- 4 helicopters sent to Dolakha for rescue operation
- 13 Indian helicopters were mobilized for todays rescue operation
- French team is on operation on Charikot
- 4700 tents have been distributed so far
- the Nepal Government requires a lot more tents
- 65,000 Nepali Army personnel has been mobilized so far
- 6,000 injured people have been treated by Government Hospitals so far
- Thousands of people left the greater Kathmandu City so far

United Nations response so far (UNOCHA)

A 23-person UN Disaster Assessment Coordination team is being deployed in Kathmandu. It has set up a Reception and Departure Centre at the airport to avoid congestion and ease the flow of relief.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is coordinating arrivals, dispatch and allocation of medical teams to affected areas and has deployed eight emergency health kits containing essential medicine, disposables and instruments to cover the health needs of 80,000 people for the next three months.
WFP is mounting an emergency operation with food trucks rolling into the district of Gorkha, one of the worst-hit areas. The agency plans to provide food for 1.4 million people over the next three months and rice distributions are expected to begin on Wednesday. Eighty metric tonnes of emergency items, including tents, blankets, health kits and telecommunications equipment, have already been dispatched.
UNHCR is bringing in relief supplies such as plastic sheets and solar lamps to 30,000 quake survivors and UNICEF is distributing of emergency hygiene kits in collaboration with the Nepal Red Cross.
On Monday, the United Nations Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos released $15 million through the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to enable humanitarian aid organizations to rapidly scale up operations and provide immediate assistance to people in desperate need.
A Flash Appeal covering an initial three months is being developed and is expected to be launched on Wednesday.

Update 10:58 UTC : We have enclosed the Nepal Television video below to show our readers that Search and Rescue is almost impossible to execute in these circumstances. Military people are just standing there looking at their job which they know is impossible to finish. Stone by stone they should have to dismantle the rubble but so much material is almost impossible to move. One of the most tragic video's we have seen so far.

Update 10:11 UTC : A more zoomed map of the fatalities as know at the time of this update in the epicenter area. Note that the numbers of Gorkha district might be far underestimated.

Nepal earthquake - Map of the injured per district (based on data from the Nepal government on April 29)

Update 08:27 UTC : When the earth started shaking on Saturday just before noon, the family of the Living goddess of Patan had just finished their meal and were sitting together. When the first jolt came, like all other residents of the city, the family started screaming and wanted to run out in panic.
But the 7-year-old Living Goddess, Yunika Bajracharya who was sitting on her ceremonial altar, told them to calm down and not to rush out of the building. “She had her eyes closed as if she was in a trance, told us nothing would happen to us,” the goddess’ father Ramesh Bajracharya recalled.

Update 08:07 UTC : The fatalities counter on top of the page has been unchanged for more than 15 hours. No new data have been disclosed by the Nepal government.

Update 08:05 UTC : Indian army helicopters are airlifting injured people from the mountains to Kathmandu. Together with seriously wounded Nepali people we can also see non-injured trekkers and Nepali people coming out of the helicopters. Hopefully they have not taken the space from injured Nepali people .....

Update 07:14 UTC : Latest government numbers are telling us that 7000 houses have collapsed and 28000 damaged to various extend.

Update 07:12 UTC : Twenty eight-year-old Rishi Khanal of Arghakhanchi was pulled out alive from the guest house on Tuesday night after almost 82 hours trapped underneath fallen floors. A French rescue team and the Armed Police Force (APF) worked relentlessly for more than ten hours on Tuesday to pull Khanal out safely. The French team had brought special detectors to find out if anyone was still alive, and Khanal was barely breathing, his leg trapped under a broken concrete beam. (source : Nepaltimes.com)

Update : ER expects a lot of fatalities. How many : too soon to make an estimate. Massive landslides alone can count for many. At least one good thing : the earthquake happened during daylight and in the Nepali spring = less victims

A cruel earthquake happened in the pre-Himalaya ranges of Nepal just in between Kathmandu and Pokara. We expected a lot of devastation and massive landslides
