At least 30 more people are dead in Nepal after a new earthquake struck the already-devastated nation early Tuesday morning.

The center of the quake was a remote area of eastern Nepal, near the border with China, which leveled buildings already weakened by the 7.8 magnitude quake that killed thousands of people just two and a half weeks ago.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed a magnitude of 7.3 and a depth of about 9 miles, revising its earlier estimates. Accompanying the strong quake were a series of almost equally sized aftershocks, the strongest measuring magnitude 6.3.

The country was still picking up the pieces from April 25th’s magnitude 7.8 quake that hit central Nepal, killing over 8,000 people. That quake struck 75 kilometers east of capital Kathmandu, causing many building in the city to be destroyed.

Residents rushed into the streets of the capital, running with crowds of other people vainly seeking open space in the congested city.

Police advised people to stay in open areas and keep roads clear for emergency services.

The death toll is likely to climb as the damage is fully surveyed.
