A magnitude 7.3 earthquake shook the ground in Nepal just weeks after another huge quake killed more than 8,000 people. Photographers traveling with a Delaware medical team for relief efforts captured the second quake on camera. The first powerful earthquake was also caught on camera and can be seen here.

BHAKTAPUR, Nepal — A second major earthquake struck this mountainous nation Tuesday — 17 days after the first devastating quake — killing 42 and injuring 1,117, the Nepali government said.

The center of the quake was located in an isolated, conservation area approximately 11 miles from Kodari, a border crossing from Nepal to Tibet, and 47 miles from the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

The USGS initially recorded it as a magnitude 7.4 earthquake, later revising the figure to magnitude 7.3. At least five, smaller aftershocks were recorded.
