Another Earthquake in Nepal...

The news headlines today is the south-east Asia earthquake. according to CNN and BBC the death toll have risen to 20000 due to the 7.6 Richter scale earthquake, mostly in Pakistan & India. that's the strength of the nature...within couple of minutes it could destroy mankind. (who needs war anyway?)

also nepal has known to be a major earthquake risk country.

so what about the earthquake preparations? ii found that the The National Society for Earthquake Technology (NSET) website had quite a handful of resources on earthquake. the earthquake preparation tips (before, during & after an earthquake) is helpful. site is offered in Nepali as well as English. also the other links contain more interesting sites. but seriously this site needs to be updated more frequently.
