China’s Hong Kong Travel Industry Council said on Saturday that more than 30 Hong Kong tourists are stranded in Nepal after a powerful earthquake hit the country earlier in the day.

According to the Travel Industry Council, these tourists are from two package tours organized by two different Hong Kong travel agencies. All of them are safe and now stranded in Kathmandu’s airport.

Hong Kong’s Airport Authority said two flights which were scheduled to head to Nepal on Saturday night have stopped checking- in passengers until further notice. A flight from Nepal scheduled to arrive Hong Kong this evening has been delayed.
