Red Cross and Red Crescent teams in Nepal are on high alert following a second 7.3 magnitude earthquake that struck near the town of Namche Bazaar, at the base of Mount Everest.
Initial assessments by the Nepal Red Cross indicate that hundreds of homes have collapsed, many of which had already been damaged by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck the country two weeks ago. Regions already struggling to cope with the effects of the earlier earthquake were hit hard.
The Red Cross are providing emergency medical assistance, first aid, shelter, clean water and search and rescue operations.
