A strong 7.5-magnitude earthquake has hit near Nepal’s capital of Kathmandu and the US Geological Survey says it expects heavy damage.

Early reports from the city say some houses have been damaged and walls toppled. There is no immediate word on casualties.

The quake hit around noon today local time and was also felt in neighbouring India as well as in Pakistan.

Mohammad Shahab, a resident from Lahore, Pakistan, says he was sitting in his office when the earthquake rocked the city.

He says the tremors continued for a while but now the situation is normal in the city.

The sustained quake also was felt in India’s capital of New Delhi.
