#ACEBREAKINGNEPAL: ' USGS REPORTS 6.7-MAGNITUDE QUAKE TRIGGERING AVALANCHES ON MOUNT EVEREST '

#AceNewsReport - Featured Update:NEPAL:April.26: A fresh 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck 17km south of Kodari, Nepal, on Sunday morning triggering avalanches on Mt. Everest and raising fresh fears after Saturday's 7.9 quake claimed thousands of lives.

The US Geological Survey reported the quake struck at 1:09pm local time (7:09am GMT). The quake was followed by another tremor, of magnitude of 5, less than 20 minutes later.
The earthquake triggered an avalanche in the

Himalayan Mountains, as well as tremors in the Indian capital, New Delhi, more than 1000km away. The New Dehli Metro system has been halted to a standstill. The Kathmandu Airport is reportedly closed after the 6.7 earthquake struck Sunday, with airspace shut down, airlive.net reported.

Tens of thousands fled their homes in the Kathmandu Valley after the 6.7 quake hit. Since Saturday’s tragic 7.9 earthquake, more than 30 aftershocks have been recorded.

The new earthquake is 'shallow', at only 10k deep. Usually smaller-depth shakes cause less damage, but sometimes, a quake with a shallow center can cause more acute damage.
AP reported the tremor as a "major aftershock," but others observed that the sheer size of the shake constitutes it as a second earthquake. People near the epicenter were yelling and running for open ground, AP said.
 
There are so far no official reports of casualties or damage from the latest quake.
