KATHMANDU, NEPAL – APRIL 27: Residents wait in line for food in a evacuation zone in Tundikhel park set up by government authorities on Monday, April 27, 2015 in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The 7.8 earthquake hit Kathmandu just before noon on Saturday (2:15 a.m. ET) followed by multiple aftershocks that triggered avalanches on Mount Everest that buried mountain climbers in their base camps.

Emergency rescue workers and residents continue efforts to find survivors. Photos (warning graphic content) are from Omar Havana and other professional photojournalist covering the earth quake in Nepal for Getty Images.
