Strong tremor felt in Kathmandu valley; Epicenter near Budhanilkantha


Magnitude 4.1 aftershock hit Kathmandu at 06:10 am Monday morning, Nepal Seismological Center reported.

The epicenter was located in Shivapuri Nagarjun National park near Budhanilkantha. It was South East of Nagi Gumba near Taarebhir.

Five days ago, magnitude 3.0 tremor rattled Gothatar area of Kathmandu. At least 414 aftershocks have rattled Nepal since April 25 earthquake.

Meanwhile, humanitarian agencies are unable to deliver aid to earthquake victims due to India-Nepal border blockade since 90 days. Food and other necessities have not been supplied to survivors of Nepal earthquake victims.

Blockades along the border between Nepal and India have caused fuel shortages. Helicopters operating for the World Food Programme have also been grounded.
