Temple University creates blog to cover Japan disaster

    While students studying at Temple University’s Japan campus remain safe after last week’s earthquake, those on Main Campus are working to cover the aftermath.

    Naoko Masuda, senior web developer for the School of Communications and Theater who hails from Japan, has been live-blogging the events there following the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and subsquent nuclear and tsnumani dangers.

    The project is part of the university’s student-run television channel, which airs on Comcast.
