More tragedy in Nepal
« on: 10/15/14, 11:03 AM »

Seeing reports this morning that 12 people have died during an early season storm in Nepal. Five climbers were caught and killed in an avalanche in Phu, 3 villagers were killed in a nearby region by a slide. Another slide tore through the base camp for Mount Dhaulagiri and five people are still missing (2 climbers, 3 guides). To add to the tragedy, four climbers were caught out in the storm on a high pass while circumnavigating Mount Annapurna and succumbed to the blizzard.

One can only imagine what it would be like for a dying Category 4 hurricane's worth of water to hit our Cascades in winter, which is what happened in this case.

We're not used to seeing hurricanes get completely shredded by mountain ranges...
