[HOT] DigitalGlobe Imagery for Nepal

Dear Kevin and DigitalGlobe Team,

This is wonderful is DigitalGlobe can provide high res images of the 
affected areas. I checked on Kathmandu but indeed the latest images are 
still very cloudy.

Is there somewhere a list of the new images made progressively available 
so that one can check which areas are being added at which time?

I am particularly interested in the area of Timure village (Rasuwa 
District) North of Kathmandu close to the Chinese border:

The latest DigitalGlobe image there dates back from 2012. There are 
currently 20-30 trekkers there waiting to come back to Kathmandu but 
apparently they are not sure the road is practicable all along the way. 
Recent high res imagery -if not too cloudy- would be super helpful for them.
