Rescue workers in Nepal struggle to reach victims, as the death toll from Saturday's earthquake continues to rise.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Golloher has the details:

Power and other services are spotty. Many people are sleeping outside due to poorly constructed apartment buildings.

A Nepalese government spokesman says 90 percent of the country's army is involved in the search efforts.

Michael Churton was at base camp on Everest when the avalanche hit.

(Churton) "Everything was gone. All our tents were gone. And then, like, people were pushed. Like, a guy who stood in front of me was knocked 30 feet over there... and, we're missing one person that we don't know if she's alive or dead." 

Aid continues to poor into the region from more than a dozen countries.
