Second 4.6R in Nepal !

A second earthquake has been reported in Nepal late last night (GMT) of magnitude 4.6R. It was reported NW of the country, about 52km E of Dadeldhura. It follows another 4.6R near Kathmandu, some 12 hours earlier. No damages are known to us yet. We were expecting the Nepal event from 20th August, but not two events. We did however expect that the exclipse will bring events delayed by at least 8 hours and posted it here. See this post here. As it happens, the two events in Nepal were 12 hours apart. I hope nobody suffered damages. Be Safe Be Good!
