Many roads were blocked due to landslides. Bajhang, which was said to be the epicenter of the earthquake in Nepal, is already in the risk zone. According to Nepal’s National Earthquake Monitoring and Research Center, earthquakes occurred several times in Bajhang district on Tuesday.

More than 50 schools were damaged and normal life was affected.
According to a report, Nepal is in that dangerous zone of the world, which is called the most active tectonic zone. Seismic activity has been recorded several times in this part. This is the reason why it is the area most at risk for natural disasters like earthquakes. In Nepal, alerts are issued from time to time when the situation worsens and in many reports it has been described as a risk zone.
