Japan's tsunami victims stuck in limbo

Deadly tsunami and earthquake permanently altered terrain, posing new challenge for residents.

    Although it is now three months since the deadly earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan, it is still unclear when many victims will be able to return home.

    The landscape has been permanently altered in some places, posing a new challenge for the residents.

    Some areas have sunk below sea level, leaving streets and homes to continue being flooded by tides and rain.

    Coupled with the beginning of the summer monsoon season, residents say it is like reliving the tsunami.
