[HOT] New - Nepal Earthquake 7.1

Hi all, the earthquake today was strong and quite long, and has a lot of
weary souls shaken. Reports of a few deaths in the valley and landslides in
the hills are already coming through. Damage around Kathmandu has been much
less than the first time from the reports I have been hearing and
observations on my own trip across the city coming home.
The one suggestion I thought I would fire off, which I'm guessing is also
obvious to the HOT community, would be focus some energy on this task:
http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1046 which covers the area nearest to
today's epicenter. Even though the imagery is a bit old, doing damage
assessments from the last earthquake and IDP camp markings will help the
work of relief efforts in those areas.
Other tasks that would also be helpful:
- Identifying more recent imagery that has come in in Dolakha and
Sindhupalchowk (both priority 1 and 2 districts here
<https://gist.github.com/prabhasp/3a8207c3c8cd7de6ba7a>) would be good. A
few reported deaths are in mostly from Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Lalitpur,
Dolakha, and Sindhupalchowk.
Tomorrow, the KLL team will also discuss whether we need to create some new
mapper tasks for first and second pass for Solukhumbu district (ie, the
Everest region), and more points east. The epicenter this time was farther
east than before, and damage reports may come in from farther east in the
