The death toll of a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in central Nepal is nearing 4,000 lives. That number includes 18 climbers who died when the quake triggered a massive avalanche above a Mount Everest camp. This frightening video shows climbers running for their lives. "The camp looks like it was hit by a tornado," Alan Arnette, a professional mountaineer told the Times. "Everything is smashed directly to the ground."
