STORY: Footage from the Nepali army showed mud and brick houses destroyed by the quake in the Himalayan country and rescuers digging through the rubble to look for survivors. At least two people were reported missing, said Nepali army spokesperson Narayan Silwal.
Nepal's seismological center registered the earthquake at a magnitude of 6.6, while the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) reported a magnitude of 5.6.
The quake was centered about 100 miles (158 km) northeast of Pilibhit, a populous city in the neighboring Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, and occurred at a depth of about 6.2 miles (10 km), EMSC added. There were no reports of damage on the Indian side, though the quake woke up many residents of the capital New Delhi.
