据新华社报道,当地时间25日12时许,尼泊尔中部地区突发7.9级(中国地震台网测定为8.1级)强烈地震,震中位于廓尔喀县,距首都加德满都约75公里,震源深度约20公里,属强破坏性浅源地震。26日15时9分,尼泊尔再次发生7.1级地震。截至昨日,地震已经造成尼境内至少2430人遇难,另有近6000人受伤,伤亡人数目前还在不断上升。尼泊尔发生强烈地震后的第二天,各路救援人员争分夺秒地在人口稠密的首都加德满都及其周边地区展开行动。

受强震波及,我国西藏日喀则市吉隆、聂拉木、定日三县受灾严重,截至27日零时,已有至少20人死亡,4人失踪,58人受伤,转移安置24803人。当地余震不断,最大震级达到了7级。西藏日喀则地震灾区倒塌房屋1206户,有9974户房屋不同程度受损。另有54座寺庙受损。目前,日喀则市已出动救援力量17361人次,动用大型机械34台。26日一天来,我国各相关部门紧急行动起来,一方面在西藏受灾地区全面展开救援行动,另一方面,积极调配运力前往尼泊尔接回我滞留旅客,并在此危急时刻向尼方伸出援助之手。

A staggering 7.9-magnitude quake, the worst to hit the nation in over 80 years, shook central, western, mid-western and far- western parts of Nepal at midday on Saturday, leaving tens and hundreds of people injured and causing damage to properties worth over billion U.S. dollars. Nepal authorities said Sunday that more than 2,430 people died in the country. At least 1,152 people were killed in capital Kathmandu, and the number of injured nationwide climbed to 5,900, they said, warning that the death toll would rise further as search and rescue efforts were hampered by damaged roads, ineffective communication lines and landslides.
 
 In Mount Qomolangma's worst disaster, the bodies of 18 mountaineers were recovered from the mountain on Sunday after being caught by in the quake-triggered avalanche. Six helicopters had managed to reach the mountain after the weather improved. The powerful tremor, which was followed by at least 14 aftershocks, also lashed parts of India, and was felt in Bangladesh and Pakistan. Aftershocks were reported throughout the day, including the 6.7- magnitude follow-up one that struck in the afternoon.
 
The quake also affected the southwestern part of China's Tibet. At least 20 people were confirmed dead in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region. A total of 58 people there were injured and another four remain missing, according to the regional disaster relief headquarters. Some 24,800 people have been relocated in Xigaze City. The quake toppled 1,206 houses and destroyed 9,974 ones, damaged roads and cut telecommunications in Xigaze, where 54 temples were also damaged.

新闻报道中涉及到地震的英文词汇,除了上文提到的  magnitude (震级), aftershock (余震),还有epicenter(震中), focal depth(震源深度), earthquake disaster zone(地震灾区)等等。由于此次地震区域接近珠穆朗玛峰系,地震还引发了山崩(landslide)和雪崩(avalanche)。
