Kathmandu: Three earthquakes of moderate intensity have jolted Nepal but no damage was reported.

A 4.8 magnitude earthquake struck Dolakha district, 110 kilometres east of capital Kathmandu, early today.

Two more quakes were recorded yesterday.

A 4.5 magnitude earthquake shook Taplejgunj district, some 300 kilometres east of Kathmandu, yesterday morning while another 4.1 magnitude quake jolted Dolakha later in the day.
