Nepal: Earthquake can Destroy much of Kathmandu

Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal and the city along with its surrounding areas has a population of over 1.5 million. Most of the people are poor and when they construct any house, they cannot afford to think much about making them earthquake resistant. Even the rich people don’t bother much about it. Well, according to some experts on earthquakes, Kathmandu is in serious risk and if a earthquake in the magnitude of 6 or 7 strikes the capital city then hundreds of buildings will get destroyed and thousands of people will die. The economic and human consequence will be catastrophic indeed.
Nepalese government is pretty much helpless to fight this looming danger. The government doesn’t have enough funds to do anything significant. Ordinary people have to realize the magnitude of the crisis.
