EverestNews.com is being told from now 5 sources on the
Mountain that there was no deaths last night. However, we classify this as
UNCONFIRMED at this point, as most of the people making the statements are at
base camp or Camp 2. We are being told several Sherpas mainly from one team
were injured in the avalanche. Most of the tents at Camp one were buried.
Stay Tuned as we are checking in with all the teams.

Everest from the South Side in Nepal
Camp I on Everest at around 5900 meters was hit hard by an
avalanche last night. After the Icefall, the climbers arrive at Camp I, which
is located at 19,500 feet. Depending on the type of expedition, Camp I will
either be stocked by the climbers as they ascend and descend the Icefall, or
by Sherpas in advance. The area between Camp I and Camp II is known as the
Western Cwm. As the climbers reach Camp II at 21,000 feet, they may be
temporarily out of sight of their support at Base camp. Nonetheless, modern
communication devises permit the parties to stay in contact.
At this point we know there were injuries and many of the
tents flattened and buried.
