Monday/ the Nepal earthquake

The death toll had climbed above 4,000 in the Nepal earthquake by Monday night.  Several historic buildings in Katmandu were destroyed (pictures below, from the New York Times).

I wanted to see where Mt Everest was located relative to the earthquake.  At least 18 people were killed when an avalanche from the earthquake hit the base camp.  Check out the great maps from the on-line edition of the New York Times, in this article Extent of the damage Nepal earthquake.
