Former Buffaloian worries about nuclear meltdown in Japan

By Eileen Buckley


Tokyo, Japan – Bodies are still washing up and others are being dug out of debris in the aftermath of the massive earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan.

A former Buffaloian, who lives in Tokyo with his family, talked to WBFO'S Eileen Buckley through Skype.

Dan Considine is a UB graduate and a former WBFO staffer. He left this region 20 years ago to teach in Tokyo.

Considine continues to experience the on-going aftershocks, but his biggest worry is a nuclear reactor meltdown.
