MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Members of the Nepal Student Association at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are brainstorming on how to help relatives and friends in the aftermath of the earthquake that has killed 3,700 in their home country.  Association members met Sunday afternoon to talk about plans for collecting donations and raising awareness of the needs in the devastated country. Many members have family members who were directly impacted by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake.  Archana Shrestha is a graduate student studying meteorology at UW-Madison. She says her parents and brother in Nepal have been sleeping in their cars because of the fear of aftershocks.  Association members say there are about 20 students and faculty members from Nepal on campus and more than 200 Nepalese immigrants living in the city of Madison.
