Nepal has been hit with another earthquake less than three weeks after a devastating earthquake killed 8,000 people in the Himalayan country. 

 

The latest earthquake was a 7.3-magnitude and struck a remote mountain region between the capital of Kathmandu and Mount Everest. ABC News reports the earthquake triggered landslides and causes buildings to collapse. 

 

At least thirty-seven people were killed and authorities expect the death toll to rise; over 1,000 people sustained injuries. 

 

Neighboring India also suffered earthquake damage; at least 16 people were killed from walls and roofs collapsing. 

 

The earthquake was followed by at least ten aftershocks, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. 

 

Search and rescue teams are now looking for survivors that could have been buried in the wreckage.
