主旨: [R3-dcom] Deaths and damage from latest earthquake

Deaths and damage from latest earthquake

So far 30 deaths have been confirmed and there has been some buildings collapse
in Kathmandu following the latest earthquake.

Satish 9N1AA reports that he has activated the emergency net on 20m on a
two hour interval. He reports that power is still not back working, and only
partial service is available on the mobile phone and the Internet.

Satish 9N1AA said: "It was very terrifying but people were much better prepared
this time. Life had slowly returned back to normalcy, but no more. The latest
earthquake will definitely make it hard for people to move on with their
daily lives.

?Some casualties were reported from the eastern part of the country, we are
still awaiting detailed reports. Rain and landslides has been forecasted
in the coming days, which might affect the rescue and relief operations."

主旨: [R3-dcom] Earthquake disaster continues in Nepal

Earthquake disaster continues in Nepal

Almost immediately a fresh earthquake measuring 7.4 hit Nepal at 0705UTC
on 12 May, the emergency frequency on 20m was activated as people ran outdoors,
already traumatised by the April 25 massive earthquake and destruction.

The new earthquake was followed by significant aftershocks. Satish 9N1AA
in Kathmandu was on the emergency net reporting on the loss of power, normal
communications, and the aftermath damage.

Jayu VU2JAU, the National Coordinator for Disaster Communication in India,
said:                                     "Immediately after the tremor I
put on my station, and had a QSO with VU3NEQ from Patana near Gurudwara.
No damage is reported up to now.

"Also had a contact with VU2UUU Kaustav in Gurgaon. All the people came out
in the open. We hope to be fine all around, still we have to wait more to
see after effect."

Jayu VU2JAU had a contact with Satish 9N1AA, who reported that there was:
"no power as well as mobiles and internet is not working. Only SMS is possible.
A few buildings collapsed but the situation is in control."

Satish 9N1AA said at 1330 hours that six houses collapsed in Kathmandu, 30
deaths were reported and 60 people injured.  Power at 9N1AA was resumed,
while other parts still faced power problem.

What surprised many was the length of time the latest earthquake was felt.
Sanjeeb 9N1SP earlier emailed that there were "aftershocks after aftershocks"
and he had to remain outdoors away from the building where the Amateur Radio
communications equipment was located.

No apparent need existed for emergency communications, but everyone is reminded
that IARU Emergency Centres of Activity along with 14.210MHz may be in use.
All non-essential traffic, including misplaced well-meaning calls to 'keep
a frequency clear', are not required, as these may cause interference.

While the Nepalese are on edge, with some talk it may only be a lead up to
an even bigger tremor, an assurance exists with foreign rescue groups, humanitarian
organisations, the International Telecommunications Union and the government,
continuing to do their work.

In about a month's time the monsoon season begins. This may further affect
many damaged buildings and spark landslides.

主旨: [R3-dcom] Nepal earthquake disaster recovery continues

Nepal earthquake disaster recovery continues

Thousands of people spent many hours in temporary shelters or outdoors when
a 7.4 earthquake struck Nepal on Tuesday, less than three weeks after the
worst quake there in more than 80 years.

More than 8,000 were killed on April 25, and the latest saw further destruction
and killed dozens of people.

Satish 9N1AA reports that there has not been any tremor above 5 in the last
half a day, with people now returning to their houses. Most in the Kathmandu
Valley had been in temporary shelters.

Almost immediately the fresh earthquake was felt in Nepal and neighbouring
India, the 20m emergency frequency was activated as people ran outdoors,
already traumatised by the earlier event and fearing the worst.

The search for missing people is continuing. Rescue groups, non-government
organisations giving humanitarian and first aid, the military, the International
Telecommunications Union and the Nepalese government, are still doing their
work.

Satish 9N1AA said queries about missing persons are still being received
from overseas. The best way to handle them is suggested via the central registry
of the Red Cross.

Avalanches caused by the tremors have made some areas very unsafe, and the
retrieval of bodies has been postponed.

Everybody is doing the best with the recovery work before the arrival of
monsoon rains in the area.

主旨: [R3-dcom] Nepal shakes while recovery continues

Nepal shakes while recovery continues

Fear is still held following further tremors in the land-locked nation of
Nepal that a third earthquake may occur, although shocks have been below
4.6 in magnitude.

The initial earthquake on April 25, the worst in that country for more than
80 years, killed than 8,000 people, injured thousands and destroyed many
buildings.

It was followed less than three weeks later with another earthquake, more
deaths and heartbreak. Satish 9N1AA reports that following more tremors things
seems are settling down.

He reports today of four tremors were all above 4 in intensity, but not as
terrifying, though their epicentre was in the Dolkha District, about 45 km
east of his location at Kathmandu.

"I hope there would not be any bigger than 6 strength in coming days. Though
situation in city area is reasonable, it is extremely bad in villages. Some
90 per cent of the rural houses are fully destroyed. Monsoon will start after
3 weeks," he said.

International and local groups engaged in rescue and aid activities are most
still in place. Satish 9N1AA said: "All major roads to Kathmandu Valley are
shaken by tremors and minor dry land slides are seen in various points in
these roads.

"Geo experts are claiming once rain begins, parts of these roads will swept
and Kathmandu could be cut-off from road connection for weeks."

-Jim Linton VK3PC, Chairman IARU Region 3 Disaster Communications Committee.
