Slideshow: A tale of two towns

Though the two Japanese towns of Ofunato and Yoshihama were both hit in the March 11 disaster, massive differences exist in terms of losses and casualties.

    In doing a story on what happened to three towns along Japan's north east coast - each of them hit by the tsunami, but with massive differences in losses and casualties - I decided to put together a slideshow of what Ofunato and Yoshihama looked like after the March 11 disaster.
