Earthquake in Sikkim

The earthquake that centered on Sikkim a few days ago has killed around 50 people in Sikkim and another 30 or so in the adjacent Darjeeling district, and also Nepal.

Fortunately, we have had no reports of deaths or damage in the schools we support in the area.

The Himalayas are an earthquake zone, and most of the buildings are not earthquake proof.
