At 1156h local time on 25 April 2015, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 and a depth of 15km struck Nepal. The epicenter of the earthquake was in the province of Gorkha, 77km northwest of Kathmandu. Early information indicated collapsed buildings both in Kathmandu and surrounding areas, and the likelihood of significant humanitarian consequences. Based on the initial information regarding potential impact, many USAR teams anticipated the need for international search and rescue support and began preparations in case of deployment. Simultaneously, an event was opened on the Virtual OSOCC and OCHA mobilized an UNDAC team. The Government of Nepal made an official request for international
assistance through the United Nations Resident Coordinator on 25 April.
The first international USAR teams arrived on 25 April and continued to arrive over the week. In total, 76 international USAR teams were registered from 31 countries, encompassing 1872 personnel and 118 dogs. Of the registered USAR teams, 18 were INSARAG IEC teams. An RDC was established at the Kathmandu Airport and an OSOCC was established in Kathmandu with the UCC adjacent to the main BoO near the Kathmandu Airport.
On 27 April, the Government of Nepal requested that all USAR teams not already in transit to stand down due to sufficient search and rescue resources in-country to meet the needs. The end of the international USAR phase was declared on 3 May and the Government of Nepal requested all teams to depart the BoO by 6 May to allow for the continued transition to relief and early recovery activities.
