2 BK women return home from disaster in Japan
Two Brooklyn women say they are glad to be home after they were stuck in Japan when the devastating earthquake and tsunami struck.
Aisha Canady and Tiffany Douglas say they stopped in Japan to catch a layaway flight, returning home from a vacation. While they were waiting inside Narita Airport, the massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake suddenly shook the building.
The two say they took refuge in an airport bathroom until the building was evacuated. Security eventually permitted people back into the airport after a third large shock, but they say the ground continued to tremble.
Douglas and Canady were stuck in the airport for 24 hours before they found a flight out of the stricken nation. Although they're safely back home at their East New York apartment, they say they are still very shaken up.
The women later found out they were about 80 miles away from where the devastation wrought by the ensuing tsunami finally stopped.
