Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on April 25, 2015

Dear musical friends, dear listeners from all around the globe !

… I am very sorry about the terrific news we get from all over India, North Nepal, Katmandu (Nepal’s capital)… with a tremendous earth quake at maximum strength of 7.8-7.9 in peak on Richter scale at 06:11:26 UTC on Saturday, 25th April 2015. Another peak reached its hight at 6.7 on Sunday, 26th April at 07:09 UTC. It seems the strongest eathquake measured over last 80 years in India, with epi centre in Northern part of Nepal.

We get from our musical friends even in Kolkata, Mumbai and other places reports. In Kolkata the earthquake durated on Saturday round about 1 minute with strength of 7.8, too.

I will try to keep you updated with our NewsTicker. – Saturday, 25th April is a sad and shocking day. In our thoughts we are with the families of killed beloved ones, injured and missed persons.

Warm regards
