The earthquake that devastated Nepal and caused death of thousands of people has shifted the earth beneath Kathmandu by up to several metres. However, the height of Mount Everest stayed the same as per experts. The massive 7.8-magnitude earthquake of Saturday was the Himalayan nation's deadliest disaster in more than 80 years causing massive destruction. University of Cambridge tectonics expert James Jackson said that according to seismological data obtained from sound waves, the ground beneath the capital Kathmandu may have moved about three metres southward.
