PDF File Size: 667 KB | Download   
Dhading is one of the worst affected districts as a result of the 7.8 earthquake that struck Nepal on 25 April. As of 11 May, 718 people had been reported killed in Dhading, and 702 people injured. Initial Government estimates suggested that 20,000 buildings have been completely destroyed in the district, and 15,000 buildings damaged (drrportal). According to initial assessment reports, in 21 VDCs 90% of houses have been damaged, in 18 VDCs 70% of houses have been damaged, and in the remaining 7 VDCs the damage was below 70% (Welthungerhilfe 01/05/2015). At time of writing, the 7.3 magnitude aftershock that struck on 12 May is not reported to have caused significant further damage to Dhading district. There was very limited road access to the northern VDCs even before the earthquake (WFP 08/05/2015) and the existing roads have been affected by landslides. As of 9 May the gravel road from Dhading Besi to Tripureshwor VDC via Katunje VDC was reportedly open. However only small vehicles (4 x 4 jeeps) were able to use the road (Logistics Cluster 09/05/2015). 46% of the district is located at an elevation of between 1000 and 3000 meters, and 13.4% of the area at an elevation of more than 3000 meters (University of Copenhagen 2005). In this latter area the road in Satyadevi is blocked because of a landslide and access to Darkha and Jalang VDCs in the mountainous areas has been affected. Jharlang, Sertu and Tipling in the mountainous North of the district also cannot be accessed. Affected VDCs close to Kathmandu along the Tribhuwan Highway in the southern part of the district reportedly experience a good supply of relief.
