On Saturday, a massive 7.8 earthquake hit an area between Kathmandu and Pokhara, the worst quake to hit Nepal in 80 years.

Throughout the weekend, rescue workers have tried to recover injured people from the rubble. At least 3,617 people have died, including climbers on Mount Everest, according to the most recent report this morning from BBC. More than 6,500 have been injured, and the death toll is expected to rise as rescue and recovery efforts continue.

The damage extends well outside the capital city of Kathmandu; villages, especially those on mountainsides, have been significantly damaged. Many people are sleeping out in the open or in make-shift tents, and water shortages are a concern.
