Climbers' Nepal Efforts: Second Quake Update

Posted: May 13, 2015 02:48 pm EDT

(Newsdesk) Following the two earthquakes 47 mi ENE of Kathmandu yesterday Team Don Bowie's base in Pokhara reported "all team members are safe.”

 

Ben, Jess and Cody were on their way down from Barpak while Don was on his way back to World Food Program in the Gorkha District, reporting a 6.3 aftershock 52 mi East of Kathmandu. "Subsequent aftershocks so far of 5.6, 5.4, 5.4, 5.0, 5.1, and 5.2," reported the website.

 

The team did two videos from the area, check them out here.

 

Ang Tshering Sherpa of Asian Trekking (Chairman of Climate Alliance of Himalayan Communities) sent out an email reporting a 7.2 magnitude earthquake with epicentre in the direction of the Everest region 12 May 2015 at 12.52 p.m. Tshering Sherpa reports vast damage in the Solukhumbu region and while sat phone contact was made fast with some parts, efforts to contact others in Khumbu have failed due to difficulties in communication lines.

 

Still in Namche Bazar, Johan Ernst Nilson posted on facebook that the village is OK but people are chocked. Adrian Hayes is headed to the remote settlements between Langtang and Gorkha.

 

New Zealand mountain guide Mal Haskins has been living in Nepal since October last year, leading expeditions and flying a helicopter. After the devastating first quake, he and his wife Sophie got together with Edmund Hillary's granddaughter, Amelia, to help deliver aid to mountain villages. Listen here to an interview a "super-tired" Mal did today with Radio New Zealand about what he experience and do in Nepal, the monsoon rains that started falling, and the difficutlies they have to get aid released from warehouses in Kathmandu.

 

Their Facebook page is NepalEQ2015. On May 11th they reported about their support team at Timbu, "The team is all good and things are reaching the aid station smoothly where it's recorded / packaged and then shipped out every 2 days to the surrounding villages - being carried by the locals." 

 

Today, after yesterday's quake, the Haskins team reported, "The road below Timbu is now open. Our next truck load of building material is on its way. Steel shipments were delayed today but will continue tomorrow. Meetings this afternoon with other organisations to try to ensure continuity of medical aid station in Timbu. Besides continued building materials, medical aid is a necessity."
