By Casey Chan on at

Tragedy struck the world when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Kathmandu, Nepal yesterday morning. Over a 1000 people have died in the disaster that turned buildings into rubble and leveled the city’s 200-foot tall Dharahara Tower to the ground. The quake was so strong it caused an avalanche on Mount Everest and was felt in India, Tibet, and Bangladesh.
