Out of several earthquakes in Nepal since October this year, the most devastating was the one that hit the country on Friday late night in which at least 157 were killed.
A day after witnessing one of the most deadly earthquakes, Nepal on Sunday early morning again felt the tremors measuring 3.6 magnitude.
The information about the tremors was shared by the National Centre for Seismology on social media.

Following the earthquake on Friday, Nepal’s Prime Minister Pushpa Kumar Dahal visited the affected areas to assess the situation.
“There has been a lot of damage in the earthquake-affected area. Hundreds of people are injured, thousands of houses have been destroyed, and our government is engaged in relief work. We have deployed the Nepali Army, Nepali Sentinel. The Armed Police Force has been given the responsibility of taking all the injured to the hospitals for rescue through helicopters,” Dahal told the media.
