KATHMANDU - Two aftershocks were felt in Nepal Tuesday morning, more than 100 days after a 7.9-magnitude earthquake jolted the tiny South Asian country on April 25.

The first aftershock measuring 3.7 on the Richter scale was recorded at 4:20 am local time with the epicenter being at the capital city Kathmandu, the National Seismological Center reported in its website.

The second aftershock, 4.3, was recorded at 10:42 am in the capital again.

Residents of the Kathmandu valley felt the strong tremor of the second quake and many of them ran out of their home and offices to the street.

According to the National Seismological Center, a total of 373 lower than 4-magnitude aftershocks have been recorded since the April 25 massive quake, which has claimed nearly 9,000 lives and left thousands of others homeless.
