Nepalese camp outside, too scared to return to quake-damaged homes

<p>Too scared to return to their quake-damaged homes, residents are camping outside on the streets in Nepal.</p> <p>Relief aid is slowly being distributed to people affected by two large quakes in three weeks.</p> <p>One woman in a makeshift camp in Kathmandu told reporters: “They have made some arrangements here but they are not sufficient. They gave us some food, but it’s already cooked and eaten. We need more help.”</p> <p>Police now say at least 100 people died and up to 2,500 were injured in a 7.3 magnitude quake on Tuesday.</p> <p>People had barely started to recover from the massive 7.8 quake on April the 25th, which killed some 8,000 people.</p> <p>As relief and rescue operations continue, a search is ongoing for a US Marine helicopter that has gone missing with eight people on board. </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">For <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Nepal?src=hash">#Nepal</a>: What <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/WFP?src=hash">#WFP</a> has done and what we are still hoping to do — <a href="http://t.co/w986HAaXSN">http://t.co/w986HAaXSN</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/food?src=hash">#food</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/UN"><code>UN</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NepalQuake?src=hash">#NepalQuake</a> <a href="http://t.co/owTG3mcfFm">pic.twitter.com/owTG3mcfFm</a></p>&mdash; World Food Programme (</code>WFP) <a href="https://twitter.com/WFP/status/598566539806187520">May 13, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">“I miss school very much” Samikshya, 12, wonders when she can resume her education: <a href="http://t.co/jQpWzqAbDv">http://t.co/jQpWzqAbDv</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Nepal?src=hash">#Nepal</a> <a href="http://t.co/QBqDmrck7Q">pic.twitter.com/QBqDmrck7Q</a></p>— <span class="caps">UNICEF</span> <span class="caps">USA</span> (@unicefusa) <a href="https://twitter.com/unicefusa/status/598533364744785920">May 13, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NepalQuake?src=hash">#NepalQuake</a> | <a href="https://twitter.com/StylianidesEU"><code>StylianidesEU</a> reaffirms EU solidarity with the people and Government of <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Nepal?src=hash">#Nepal</a>: <a href="http://t.co/37C2lzvpHg">http://t.co/37C2lzvpHg</a> <a href="http://t.co/noqp2nJY0p">pic.twitter.com/noqp2nJY0p</a></p>&mdash; EU Humanitarian Aid (</code>eu_echo) <a href="https://twitter.com/eu_echo/status/598520124660948992">May 13, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The sad economic lesson of the earthquakes in Nepal <a href="http://t.co/h5y3MkPmSs">http://t.co/h5y3MkPmSs</a> <a href="http://t.co/FcQnqgrT9j">pic.twitter.com/FcQnqgrT9j</a></p>— Fortune (@FortuneMagazine) <a href="https://twitter.com/FortuneMagazine/status/598518684194332672">May 13, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">"Terrified" people are too scared to return to their homes in Nepal after a second earthquake <a href="http://t.co/UtNBEK0naI">http://t.co/UtNBEK0naI</a> <a href="http://t.co/RfDWB2rXY2">pic.twitter.com/RfDWB2rXY2</a></p>— Sky News Tonight (@SkyNewsTonight) <a href="https://twitter.com/SkyNewsTonight/status/598560902313594882">May 13, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">After fighting <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Ebola?src=hash">#Ebola</a>, these <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Liberia?src=hash">#Liberia</a> women are now helping in <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NepalEarthquake?src=hash">#NepalEarthquake</a> <a href="http://t.co/YrnVoMeiCn">http://t.co/YrnVoMeiCn</a> via <a href="https://twitter.com/BuzzFeed"><code>BuzzFeed</a></p>&mdash; UNICEF (</code>UNICEF) <a href="https://twitter.com/UNICEF/status/598536934743478272">May 13, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Rescuers continue to search for U.S. Marine chopper that went missing on aid mission in Nepal <a href="http://t.co/4PifcaABHy">http://t.co/4PifcaABHy</a> <a href="http://t.co/qewkrNTJKm">pic.twitter.com/qewkrNTJKm</a></p>— <span class="caps">NBC</span> Nightly News (@NBCNightlyNews) <a href="https://twitter.com/NBCNightlyNews/status/598569531112579073">May 13, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
