Kate O'Berg is talking about her visit to Minami Soma, Japan. She said she was overwhelmed by the devastation she saw.  It's just one of the towns wiped out and isolated after the tsunami and nuclear disaster in March. Kate and her friend, Trina have just returned along with others on the Flight of Friendship goodwill mission. As Pendleton residents, their goal was to visit their sister city located near the Fukushima Nuclear Plant. They weren't worried about radiation. About 20,000 people are still living in the town of Minami Soma.
