At least 128 people are dead as of Saturday morning after a strong earthquake of 6.4 magnitude shook western Nepal just before midnight Friday.

Dozens more have been found injured as rescue operations are underway across the mountain villages. Officials told Associated Press that communication was cut off with many places.

Both Nepal Army and Nepal Police personnel have been mobilized to carry out rescue works. Landslides triggered by the tremor and its aftershocks obstructed certain trails for the rescuers.
