"We had an official bulletin last night telling people that it was OK for them to return home and sleep indoors tonight. Shortly after that bulletin went out, we had a 4.8 aftershock," reported NPR's Kirk Siegler early Tuesday. "So, things are still very much evolving here—and a lot of scared and nervous people."
Boise State Public Radio reports that Boise State grad student Shital Dhakal has reached out to his family in Nepal, who have been living out of a tent for the past few days. Dhakal told BSPR that his parents were too "nervous to go inside."
Meanwhile, a vigil is set for 7 p.m. April 28 in the Quad of Boise State University to honor those who were killed in the tragedy and to raise awareness of the much-needed funds and supplies for the ravaged nation. Dhakal and members of the Idaho Nepalese community have begun an online appeal, via the YouCaring platform, to contribute to the earthquake relief fund. As of midday Tuesday, the appeal had raised more than $2,000.
