UH bringing students home from Japan

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - In light of the U.S. State Department advisory "strongly urging" all Americans to "consider departing" Japan, the University of Hawaii System is helping its students return home.

The University of Hawaii has been in constant contact with its nearly three dozen college students currently in Japan, either through study abroad and exchange programs or graduate studies, according to a UH spokeswoman.

Eight students are from UH Hilo and 27 are from UH Manoa.

None of them is in the vicinity of the most seriously damaged areas; they are all in other parts of the country and, based on our most current information, indicate they are safe and not in any immediate danger.

We are in communication with them, and are actively assisting them in abiding by this Travel Warning from the U. S. State Department.
