Three Muhlenberg College students were in Nepal at the time of Saturday’s devastating earthquake that has claimed nearly 1,500 lives.
All of the Muhlenberg students are safe and have been in contact with their families, said Mike Bruckner, the college’s vice president of public relations.
Four Muhlenberg students are studying abroad in the region, he said. Three were in Nepal when the quake hit; the other student was in India at the time. Two of the students are female and two male.
Earlier today, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake centered less than 50 miles from Kathmandu rocked Nepal with devastating force, toppling homes, temples and historic buildings and leaving at least 1,457 people dead, authorities said.
