The M7.8 Earthquake In Nepal Is Going To Be Really, Really Nasty

Via io9: ‘A major shallow earthquake hit near Kathmandu in Nepal just before noon on Saturday local time. Between high population densities, intense prolonged shaking, unstable slopes, and inadequate buildings, this has the makings of a very nasty disaster.’

via Gizmodo: ‘There are a few important ways you can contribute to the Nepal earthquake relief effort from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.’

I’m praying for all my friends in Kathmandu.
