A 7.3 magnitude earthquake has hit eastern Nepal, killing at least 42 people and injuring more than a thousand. This comes just two weeks after a massive 7.8 earthquake devastated the nation, killing more than 8,000 people and leaving hundreds of thousands of residents homeless.

Members of the disaster response team from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) are making damage assessments from the air and on the ground.

Team leader Bill Berger tells Here & Now's Robin Young about what they're seeing and how this may hamper progress made in the relief effort after the April 25 earthquake.

Guest

  • Bill Berger, USAID's Nepal earthquake disaster assistance response team leader.
