    What caused the Nepal earthquake - YouTube Dictation

    Hi,

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG3D05Bpz8c

    This is the video I am transcribing at the moment, and there is one part I am not quite sure about.

    We’ve already seen one magnitude 6.6 earthquake, so those may continue for many weeks, months after the earthquake itself ... the number will reduced with time after the earthquake.
    The ... part I could not make out can be heard at 1:08 - 1:10.

    I also hear "will reduced" Did I hear wrong?


    Thank you in advance for your help.

    'We've already seen one magnitude 6.6 earthquake, aah, so those may continue for, for many weeks, months after the, after the earthquake itself, although the number will reduce…'

    There was something at the end of the word 'reduce', but I'm sure it's due to the poor sound quality of the Skype connexion. He definitely said 'reduce' but you will notice that the image froze momentarily, just as he said it.

    The uploader has not made this video available in the U.S., sorry.

    Roman seems to be saying that there was another word there after reduce that begins with D, and the word or phrase has been cut out, except for the D. That makes sense.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
