ity demands answers for his death in police custody. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. john berman has the morning off. it is april 27th. 5:00 a.m. in the east. let's start in nepal this morning. untold devastation from the magnitude 7.8 earthquake and aftershocks. the latest death toll is 3,432. another 6,5000 06,500 injured. the frequent aftershocks is terrifying residents living in tent cities or sleeping outside. standing by live for us in kathmandu is our correspondent sumnima udas. she is an native of nepal. she has been there in the central square a hub there for tourists. anyone who visited kathmandu has
been in the place where you are standing. what are you seeing now? >> reporter: i have been standing here for the past four to five hours. maybe four or five people helping out to dig through the rubble. now more and more people are joining in there. you have foreign volunteers. you have nepali volunteers. they are using their bare hands. only a few have spades. some are using steel plates or whatever else they can find. they don't expect to find survivors. some of the volunteers we expect to an american was saying he is still hopeful. just to describe what this was before the earthquake hit, it was a three-story temple dedicated to the hindu god fishu. this is all part of the world
heritage site. one of the main temples in the area. next to that at least six or seven other temples in a similar condition. you know, right now, they have been saying they don't want to use heavy duty equipment because they want to ensure they don't cause anymore damage to this temple or the pieces or wooden planks. i don't know if you have seen pictures of the temple beforehand but every plank or every single part of the temple is carved. this dates back to the 16th century. the temple behind it is from the 12th century. we are talking about the middle ages when you compare it to europe. these are, you know very important part of nepali history and culture. this things these planks would normally be in a museum. here it is part of our living culture and history.
people go inside the temples and worship the gods and goddesss ss ss here. for people the temples hold a special meaning. to see this in complete ruin a lot of people are shocked, christine christine. >> you report that for ten years now, they have been talking about the fact this is on a major fault line. the himalayan mountains were created by the plates shifting that caused this particular earthquake. you are from there. your producer is also from there. tell us about covering the story right there in your home country. >> reporter: that's right. since the 1990s, everyone has
been talking about the impending earthquake. every week or so. a radio show as to what to do if an earthquake should strike. ngos and u.n. used to go school to school and village to village informing people. there has been a lot of awareness. people knew this was coming. now it has actually hit, i don't think people have processed it completely. to be honest i haven't. i was talking to our producer. you know it really hasn't registered. i have been in touch with my family members. they are fine. they live in kathmandu valley. everything's okay there. for our producer he still hasn't been able to get in touch with his relatives who are closer to the epicenter.
>> thank you. governments all over the world leaping to meet the assistance in nepal. a pentagon cargo plane in the air with rescue specialists. the u.s. embassy providing $1 million for immediate assistance. poland belgium and many countries spending personnel, equipment and relief supplies and financial aid. for the latest on the relief effort i want to bring in manisha tank. we have seen international disasters like this. you see the pictures of people suffering, you see the immediate response. what are the needs and priorities for the aid? >> reporter: the major thing is the clock is ticking on finding survivors. you see people digging in the rubble there in kathmandu. in the remote areas where the epicenter was, you are talking
of villages which most people living in structures not made of brick. they are smaller structures. they could tumble down and many affected in the areas. they are not certify viceserviced by roads. one spokesperson outlining what it is like to get help to the areas. christine. >> we talked to somebody from save the children india. he is already getting folks moving into the interior saying the children are the most vulnerable at this point especially if their parents are killed or injured. if their parents have to go on to find work there is a children crisis here brewing as well. >> reporter: very much so. you have whole families mothers with children living under tarps. pakistan is a donor which sent 2,000 meal packets. it will not go too far, but more
countries sending supplies. the countries sending, u.s. australia, britain, france israel. uae, taiwan pakistan. a few of the countries on the long list rushing to bring aid. there is a bit of a log jam going on at airport. this is an airport, international airport at kathmandu, you see shots of the u.s. personnel. they also pointed out it will take 24 hours to get to the remote areas. a bit of a jam at the airport. they need to get people in and get that cargo and supplies moving to where it is needed. >> manisha tank in hong kong. thank you. disasters around the world before. i want to bring in mark south. a spokesperson for the red cross. an organization which has seen this devastation many times around the globe. he is in kathmandu this morning. i want to ask him more on the
groups helping those getting back on their feet after the quarter. mark we heard from manisha about pakistan and the food packets. what is the red cross doing to organize all of the efforts? >> the red cross is having an international group on the ground here for more than 50 years. they have more than 5,000 volunteers since the earthquake struck. now, the model, the way the red cross works is based in the community. volunteers will be from the communities where they are working. that is not just in kathmandu, but areas outside the kathmandu valley. it is hard to reach. >> what are the things that people need the most right now? we are seeing pictures of rescues still underway. we know people need food they need clean water. in many cases, you have families
with young children huddled under tarps. what is needed first? >> i don't think there is a single priority. we need to work on all of these things at the same time. the search and rescue is going on and rightly so. there are medical needs. hospitals are stretched. supplies need to keep coming in. you mentioned thousands of people on the streets. they need shelter. there is rain forecast the next ten days. that puts people in a vulnerable situation. especially as you say children and older people. that is a priority. also clean water. sanitation. these are things we have to think about if we will have large numbers of people in shelters for any period of time. >> let me ask you about trying to address the immediate impact. the red cross has experience
doing that and the longer term rebuilding. when you look at haiti and the devastation in haiti a few years ago. many say after the initial push to patch up the situation, the country is sometimes left without the infrastructure investments and without really fixing these problems. how do you look at what's happening right now in nepal and how does an organization like the red cross try to fix things to better i guess, strengthen the country overall? >> well i think the government is trying to build that better. it's something we have to try to do. the way to do that is to work with the government and local authorities with the people here to make sure aid delivers is the aid they need and help they want. >> indeed. we wish you the best of luck. mark south spokesperson of the
red cross in kathmandu. it is early afternoon in nepal. people are facing another night of sleeping outside and terrified of going into their homes. rubble of their homes at least. mark south, thanks. the earthquake touching off avalanche in the mountainous country. the moment caught on camera by the german climber jost kobusch. listen. >> go!

recovery at this hour? >> reporter: so very much underway christine. especially in the rural parts, we know a lot of helicopter authorities have been out around the epicenter to see if they can find any survivors. those helicopters, we have not received any new information as far as what they found there. we know the army is holding a press conference in the next hour. from what we are understanding right now, the government still doesn't have a complete picture of the true extent of the devastation. the magnitude of the devastation. behind me you can see people regular people foreign volunteers and local volunteers and nepali police digging and going through what used to be a temple from the 16th century.
digging with their bare hands. some of them have spades. some using the steel plates. that is what people used to eat out of. they are saying they are not using heavy duty equipment because they don't want to damage any of the artifacts. price less artifacts. these temples are using every single beam or plank is carved. these are objects which were normally be in the museum elsewhere. it part of the living culture here. people worship the deities inside. the human loss and the homes that people have lost the fact that people have to live out or stay out in tents. some of them without nichelle after. that is devastating. they are completely shocked.

area. every 60 or 70 years, a huge earthquake is expected. we are 80 years roughly. in some ways this earthquake was long overdue. people have been expecting this. a lot of awareness. u.n. and ngos have been going door-to-door and village-to-village preparing people. now that it has happened people are shocked and surprised although they were aware this would happen. >> all right. sumnima udas thank you for that. in kathmandu for us. governments all over the world leaping to meet nepal's need for international assistance. pentagon cargo plane in the air with 70 relief and rescue specialists and gear. the u.s. embassy providing $1 million in immediate assistance. poland and belgium and many other countries are sending personnel and equipment and relief supplies and financial
aid packages. i want to go to dubai and cnn's john deptarias. good morning, good afternoon, to you, john. >> reporter: good morning, christine. you see the relief action taking place in the first 48 hours. we are expecting four jumbo jets to leave dubai. two from the concourse and two from dubai world central. i'm in a warehouse at the human humanitarian cities. you can see what is going on. there are three priorities. shelter and first aid and telecommunications. to give you a sense of what is going out. the world food program. a batch of 90 tarps. 15 organizations involved in getting out the first wave in the first 48 hours. first aid kits and then the

economic output. that is just an early estimate. it will go higher. one of the reasons the damage was so devastating is the standard of housing construction is low. with annual gdp is around $1,000 per person many live in poverty. tourism and foreign climbers pay up to $100,000 to climb mt. everest. that industry is in risk given the dangerous accidents. the community demanding answers here in this country. freddie gray's family is demanding calm. they are preparing to lay him to rest today. we bring you a report from baltimore next. need a tow or lock your keys in the car, geico's emergency roadside assistance is there 24/7. oh dear, i got a flat tire. hmmm. uh... yeah, can you find a take where it's a bit more dramatic on that last line, yeah? yeah i got it right here.
