The geological process that created the Himalayas is what continues to bring heartbreak to Nepal.
Millions of years ago the tectonic plate carrying India slammed into and dived beneath the Eurasian plate, pushing the mountains up. The Indian plate is still moving, making Nepal "one of the most seismically hazardous regions on Earth," according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Translation – earthquakes.
But two major temblors in less than three weeks is more than any country can take.
Once again, Nepal needs our help, and once gain, I'm providing a list of relief agencies for anyone wishing to donate.
Time is running out, before the monsoon season arrives next month, to provide adequate shelter for those left homeless, so if you are still undecided, please act now.
Thanks to all of you who have already responded so generously.
