Hard to say, but I believe the toll will go much higher as the more remote areas are reached. 18 at Everest  basecamp ?  there must be 1,000 people there this time of year ?

Reports this morning at 10:00am indicated that the death toll was unofficially 3,700. Those numbers do not include injuries or casualties from the outlying towns and villages that have been cut off from aid and communication. Horrible...just unfathomable

Before and after photos of monasteries and city streets in Katmandu in the news show rebuilding issues of an an unimaginable scale in Nepal, the 3rd poorest country on the globe! World Heritage sites of tremendous beauty and irreplaceable value are devastated! The damage to dwellings and people in the villages will demand years of effort to recover from. Tourism has been Nepal's major income by far. The loss of income needed to rebuild will be incalculable due to the damage to the infrastructure of which the "primitive" nature was a large part of its attraction to many! They will need prayers, but much more importantly economic aid in huge amounts-- can we just stop wars and dedicate that money to helping humans in need? ( Save your breath! I know how na´ve that statement is!)

Tragic and we still haven't fully learned of the impact that this earthquake has had on the region. I can't even begin to imagine what it was like being in the line of fire of that wind blast, scary stuff. I hadn't even realized that those were a hazard until the talk about them at ESAW this past Fall, definitely left me feeling a bit spooked about spending time near mountains with large seracs.
