No matter how harrowing the headlines, often a news report just doesn't convey the scale of a disaster like the Nepalese earthquake this weekend. 

The earthquake, which struck just outside Kathmandu, measured 7.8 on the Richter scale and has left thousands dead, injured or homeless. This video, taken from an Everest basecamp hit by an avalanche, gives some insight into the destruction caused and has been viewed over 5 million times in the last few days.
