Avalanche Update - 11:30 NPT

Tim reports complete chaos on Everest right now. 

6 Sherpas are dead and 9 people missing. Helicopters are flying up and down doing rescues of stranded climbers and long line lifts of the dead Sherpas. As many as 100 climbers were stranded above a broken ladder that are being evacuated down to camp. 

Tim instructed all our members and Sherpas to call home and inform family they are ok. This event has sent shivers throughout the Khumbu. Everyone is rattled by this tragic event.
