Nepal records eight more tremors

Kathmandu: Eight fresh tremors were recorded on Monday in Nepal.

The National Seismological Centre (NSC) recorded a 4.4 magnitude quake with the epicentre in Sindhupalchowk district at 3.40 a.m.

Seven other quakes below 5 on the Richter scale were recorded with their epicentre in Dolakha, Gorkha, Nuwakot, Rasuwa and Nuwakot districts.

There were no injuries or destruction from the quakes.

NSC chief Lok Bijay Adhikari said Nepal had suffered a total of 134 aftershocks of more than 4 on the Richter scale since the powerful April 25 earthquake killed thousands.

He said the aftershocks were occurring with widening gap and with lesser magnitude. Adhikari said the aftershocks may last for months “and there is no need to worry much”.
