A powerful earthquake has struck Nepal’s capital of Kathmandu, killing over 2,000 people.
But, the number keeps climbing.
It’s the strongest quake to hit the poor South Asian nation in over 80 years.
The city’s older structures seem to have been hardest hit according to CBS news.
Such as old temples, leaving people trapped in buildings since the quake struck this morning.
It triggered avalanches in the Himalayas and was also felt in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Tibet.
Canada’s Foreign Affairs Department says it is closely monitoring the situation, and estimates there are around 388 Canadians registered as being in Nepal.
However, they do say since registration is voluntary, this is only an estimate.
