What the Everest avalanche looked like

Jost Kobusch, a German mountaineer attempting to climb Everest, apparently started filming when the ground started shaking at his Everest base camp.

Then the avalanche came.

(Warning: Obscenities)

At least 18 people were killed in the avalanche caused by Saturday’s magnitude-7.8 earthquake in Nepal.

    Wow. Advertisement the Northface tents, that you can hide behind one during an avalanche. As if being the tent of choice at everest base camp wasn’t enough…

    I’ve been through storms that produced tornados less than a mile away in my tent, but I don’t know if it’d stay up against that (and never want to test it)
