Landslide risk remains high a year after magnitude-7.8 Nepal earthquake

With the monsoon fast approaching, the landslide risk in Nepal remains high a year after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake that killed more than 8,000 people, according to a University of Michigan-led research team.

The April 25, 2015, earthquake struck central Nepal and was followed two weeks later by a magnitude-7.2 aftershock. Both events produced strong ground shaking in the steep terrain of the Himalaya Mountains, causing widespread landsliding.
