calamities are occurrences, events or phenomenons that happen of their own accord.
Some very common examples are hurricanes, floods, earthquakes etc.they cause
great disaster to both human lives and nature.
The most recent earthquake took place in Kathmandu,
Nepal on 25th of April, 2015 around 11:30 a.m.it was a severe one with a
maximum merculli intensity of VIII.it is also known as the Gorkha Earthquake.
The condition of Nepal and its citizens was very bad. Officially around 8452
people died and 19009 people were severely injured. Many people were made homeless.
Centuries old buildings were destroyed. Some monuments include Kathmandu durbar
square, the patan durbar square etc.
There were many aftershocks among which the
one that occurred on 26th April was a severe one with a magnitude of 6.7 on the
Richter scale. A second major earthquake occurred on 12th May, 2015.more than
200 people were killed and more than 2500 were injured by this aftershock.
These few continuous days were the worst ones for the people of Nepal and the neighbouring
countries of Nepal.
I hope that such a natural disaster
would not take place on earth.
