A U.S. Marine Corps helicopter assisting in earthquake relief is missing in Nepal following this morning’s powerful aftershock. Six Marines and two Nepalese soldiers were on board, according to a U.S. Pacific Command spokesman.

The UH-1Y Huey disappeared over Charikot, which was one of the villages hardest hit during this morning’s quake.
