Full coverage: 8.1-Magnitude Quake Hits Central Nepal

Nepal is reeling from the devastation brought by a magnitude 8.1 earthquake that struck on Saturday. Nepal's Interior Minisry has said that the death toll from the quake has climbed to 1,931 . And more than 4,700 people are injured.

Nepal's military predicts the death toll may climb to as high as 5,000. The Chinese embassy in Nepal has confirmed that four Chinese nationals were killed, with five severely injured.

The initial magnitude-eight-point-one quake struck 80 kilometers east of Pokhara on Saturday afternoon. It was followed by a huge aftershock, measuring seven-point-zero. As of Sunday, two big aftershocks have been recorded, with the latest in the afternoon with a magnitude of 7.1.

This is the most powerful and devastating earthquake to have hit Nepal in over 80 years. The tremor was felt by more than 4.6 million people across South and East Asia.

Search and rescue efforts are underway for survivors buried under the rubble and flattened buildings, but efforts are being hampered by rain and aftershocks. Nepal national television is reporting that 90 percent of historical structures in Kathmandu Valley were destroyed in the earthquake.(英文文本 via CNTV)
