Earthquake Tremors Continue to Terrorize Nepal

Central Nepal experienced two consecutive tremors of magnitude 5.2 and 4.3 on April 24, 2019.

According to Nepal Seismological Centre (NSC), both the earthquakes originated in Dhading district’s Naubise. The first tremor struck at 6:29 AM, followed by a second tremor felt around 11 minutes later.

NSC also stated that the tremors were aftershocks of the Gorkha Earthquake in 2015. They occurred a day before the fourth anniversary of the massive quake that claimed 9,000 lives and injured 20,000 people.

On the same day, another earthquake hit Kathmandu at 6:14 AM. According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre, the earthquake measured 4.8 on the Richter scale.

Even four years after the earthquake shattered hundreds of homes, schools and heritage sites. Many quake victims in Kathmandu Valley continue to live in quake-damaged houses that are fragile.

According to the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA), about 70 percent of quake victims in the Valley are yet to start demolishing or reconstructing their damaged houses.

Out of the 101,277 beneficiaries that were supposed to receive the state’s financial help, only 90,704 have received NPR 50,000, which is only the first installment of the total NPR 300,000 housing grant.

Besides, the lack of easy access to government agencies and financial institutions and tedious application procedures have added to the victims’ burden of reconstruction.

However, there is progress and things are slowly falling in place. Recently, NRA’s Central Project Implementation Unit declared that it has completed reconstruction activity for 4,476 earthquake-damaged schools.

Let’s see how the reconstruction agency will work towards increasing and easing the reconstruction of homes across the Valley.
