Nepal’s devastating earthquake that hit Saturday is now blamed for at least 3,700 deaths. Reconstruction is estimated to cost billions. International aid efforts are underway, but aftershocks are rattling survivors’ nerves and making the recovery even more challenging.
Rescue crews and aid groups are working to reach survivors — but their efforts are being hampered by the stricken areas’ remote locations. Roads that are drivable are clogged with traffic.
Officials warn the death toll could go much higher. The 7.8-magnitude quake has left nearly 1 million children in need of humanitarian aid, UNICEF says.
