Reno Grad Students In Nepal Wednesday, May 13, 2015 | Sacramento, CA Listen / download audio Update RequiredTo play audio, update browser or Flash plugin. At least 50 people died in Nepal Tuesday after another large earthquake shook the country. University of Nevada, Reno seismologist Steve Wesnousky went to Nepal following April’s deadly earthquake to research the fault in Nepal, which is one of the world’s longest. He returned to California hours before this latest earthquake, but his doctoral students, Ian Pierce and Steve Angster, stayed behind. They witnessed the quake and spoke with us from Kathmandu about their experience.
