Photos: Massive earthquake strikes Nepal

One day after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake ravaged Nepal on Saturday, a series of aftershocks have continued to shake the region, one of which measured 6.6 on the Richter scale.

More than 2,500 people were killed, and nearly 6,000 injured. In response to the unfolding humanitarian crisis, the Nepalese government has set up 16 relief stations across Kathmandu, the New York Times reported.

The massive quake also set off an avalanche on Mount Everest, which killed at least 18, and injured another 61, according to the Associated Press. Aid workers continue to search for survivors, as planeloads of supplies, doctors and relief workers begin to arrive on the scene.

The United States government plans to send a disaster response team and has pledged at least $1 million in aid.
