 CHARLOTTE, NC — New pictures show more of the destruction from Saturday’s earthquake in Nepal.  Hundreds of homes around Kathmandu have been reduced to rubble.  Thousands are injured and being treated in the streets.  

A team of doctors from CMC’s Department of Emergency Medicine are on their way to help.

“I expected to see that there’s a considerable need,” said DEM Vice Chair Dr. Lee Garvey.  “Then we just hope that we’ll be able to provide some assist with that, in filling some of the needs.”

The Greater Charlotte Nepalese Association is hosting a candlelight vigil to remember the earthquake victims.  The vigil will be held Wednesday night at 6:30 at the International House on Central Avenue in Plaza Midwood.
