A Bay Area man says he feels lucky that he survived an avalanche that killed at least 13 people on Mount Everest.
KCBS has obtained photos from an American who was on the mountain when the deadly avalanche happened Friday. At least 12 of the guides were killed, and four others are missing. Several more were hurt.
Mount Everest gets all the credit, but Hawaii’s Mauna Kea (an idle volcano that’s been around for, you know, a million years) is technically the world’s tallest mountain. Technically. While it stands 13,800ft above sea level, more than two thirds of the hill is actually submerged underwater, which brings the total height to 33,136ft.
After ascending Mt. Everest half a dozen times, a Nepalese man who lives in Richmond reached another high point as he took the oath of U.S. citizenship on Tuesday.
