On Sunday, September 23, 2012, at least 9 people were killed by an avalanche on Mount Manaslu, about 100 km (60 miles) northwest of Kathmandu.

At least five injured climbers were rescued from the mountain while four people are still missing. 

The height of Mount Manaslu is 8,163-metre (26,781-foot).

It is the world’s eighth highest mountain. 

Among the dead were climbers from Germany and Spain. 

Since the accident took place at a height of 7,000 meters (22,950 feet), helicopters had to be used to rescue the victims.

Avalanche is very dangerous and lots of people were killed and injured by avalanche each year.

I am sad and sorry for the victims, their friends and families.

): Disasters :(

The disasters are :

UFO, Tornado,  AcidRain,  Space JunkFlood Landslide,  Fire,  Earthquake,  Whirlpool,  Locust,  War,  Drought, Blizzard , Tsunami,  Hurricane,  Sandstorm,  Monsoon Storm,  Avalanche, Mudslide, Volcano Eruption.

Some people are also like disasters because they disturb and hurt other people 😦

Flood in India. It is a disaster.

People get hurt and some people die when disaster happens.

My big sister Aeshah’s friend died when a landslide hit her house in Taman Harmonis, Gombak 4 years ago.

Disasters also destroy houses, cars, farms, roads, schools, shops, hospitals and others.

Cutting down trees, throwing rubbish everywhere, cutting down hills, pollution, playing with matches and fire crackers can cause disasters.

I think we should not play with fire crackers and do not throw rubbish all over the place.

We should plant lots of trees, recycle and do not cut down hills.

We should love and take care of our planet Earth.
