Second earthquake hits Nepal
A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has struck Nepal today about 300km north of Kathmandu, in a remote area near Mount Everest.
This is the second earthquake to strike Nepal since a 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed more than 7,000 and devastated the region. Read RTÉ news report
Our team on the ground is undertaking a fresh assessment of the damage in order to respond to this new earthquake. Reports are already coming in that landslides have cut off roads, making remote communities inaccessible. It is anticipated that the primary needs will be shelter, clean water and hygiene kits. Shelter will be the main priority as monsoon season looms.
