KSFR Santa Fe Public Radio interviews Andrew Lustig on his way to Nepal

Nepal’s Prime Minister says the death toll from Nepal’s devastating earthquake could reach 10-thousand. The seven-point-eight magnitude quake destroyed huge sections of Kathmandu, including an eight story ancient temple, triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest that killed more than a dozen climbers while trapping others, and injuring thousands more. According to a UN coordinator in Nepal, eight-million people in 39 districts have been affected, of which over two million people live in the 11 severely affected districts. Rescue efforts have intensified in Nepal as a stream of foreign aid reaches the capital, including at least one aid organization from here in Santa Fe.
