Moderate quake jolts Nepal
A moderate quake measuring 5.5 magnitude on the Richter scale today hit Nepal, according to the country's National Seismological Center.

The quake was epi-centred at Sindhupalchowk district, 55 km, north–east of Kathmandu, according to The National Seismological Centre.

There has been so far 428 after shocks with 4 or more magnitude recorded across Nepal after the devastating earthquake of April 25, 2015.

Nine days ago, another 4.4 magnitude tremor was recorded in the same area. Friday's quake forced many people to come out of their house.

Sindhupalchowk is the epicenter of several strong tremors during April-May last year. However, there was no report so far about any causality in the incident.
