The biggest earthquake to occur in its vicinity was the the Bihar–Nepal border earthquake of magnitute, which caused widespread devastation and claimed the lives of ab people.

The last significant earthquake in the region occured in February ; it measured on the Ritcher scale. It was also the most-powerful earthquake to strike Nepal since the magnitude Bihar-Nepal earthquake rattled the southeastern part of the country inkilling more t, with some sources placing the death toll as high as 25, We have recompiled the descriptions of damage and destruction caused by the 15 January Bihar-Nepal earthquake, given by both Dunn et al.

The Bihar-Nepal earthquake of depicted widespread surface manifestations in Kathmandu valley too. Due to lack of accelerometric recording stations the exact ground motion parameters are not known for this earthquake but Rana [9] estimated the approximate surface velocity to be ~– cm/ by: Therefore, the science of earthquakes is called seismology (World Book Dictionary show more content Fires, landslides, tsunami, falling rock, damaged buildings, and damaged gas lines are just a few results of secondary shocks.

These conditions reek havoc on earthquake corrupted areas, and inBihar-Nepal witnessed this first hand. He is perhaps the only one who vividly remembers the earthquake ofa monster magnitude temblor that left 4, people dead and roughly.

The earthquake has been described as the worst disaster to hit Nepal since the deadly Bihar-Nepal earthquake of The focus has shifted from immediate emergency relief to the reconstruction of lost homes, schools, monuments and livelihoods, but this is likely to be a slow and drawn-out process, especially given the notorious bureaucracy and.
