Caution: This video is NSFW.

It's amazing that this guy actually caught the avalanche as it hit and lived to tell the tale. I have honestly never seen anything quite this terrifying, and neither had they. Their reaction after they realize they've survived that wall of snow is pretty human, which means they weren't self-censoring their language.

Updated information on the earthquake:

At least 3,218 people are now known to have died in a massive earthquake which hit Nepal on Saturday, say officials.

Rameshwor Dangal, head of Nepal's disaster management agency, said another 6,500 people had been injured.

Dozens of people are also reported to have been killed in neighbouring China and India.

Thousands have spent a second night outside after the 7.8-magnitude quake, which also triggered deadly avalanches on Mount Everest.

Vast tent cities have sprung up in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, for those displaced or afraid to return to their homes as strong aftershocks continue.
