Chestnut Ridge resident reunites with family in Nepal

A Chestnut Ridge resident just returned home after being reunited with his family in Nepal.

Ram Tripathi went to Nepal to check in on his parents, who were unscathed by two massive earthquakes in less than three weeks.

He also was on a mission to bring supplies and offer hope to the children who were scared and shaken.

Tuesday's 7.3-magnitude quake killed at least 96 people and injured more than 2,300. The 7.8-magnitude earthquake that hit April 25 killed more than 8,150 people, injured tens of thousands more and left hundreds of thousands homeless.

Tripathi says the things he saw in Nepal will stay with him forever.
