Everest Avalance

The Weather Channel reports  – At least 10 climbers and guides were killed, but more were injured and missing, and officials weren’t sure how many people were stranded on routes now cut off by snow.

Numerous climbers may now be cut off on routes leading to the top of the world’s highest peak. 

The avalanche began on Mount Kumori, a 7,000-meter (22,966-foot) -high mountain just a few miles from Everest, gathering strength as it headed toward the base camp while climbing expeditions have been preparing to make their summit attempts in the coming weeks, said Ang Tshering of the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
