Japan's 6 month anniversary of tsunami shows signs of debris and scars

JAPAN.-Sunday marked the 6 month anniversary of that massive earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan back in March.

Today, much of the debris has been cleared, but the emotional scars and radiation fears still remain. All of the debris from homes swallowed by the tsunami is now brought to this dump site looking out over the water, a spot once lined by pine trees in a national park. Now its home to more than 800,000 tons of waste.

Nearly 20,000 people have been confirmed dead or missing. The reactors at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant have finally stabilized, but radiation concerns have forced 80,000 families out of their towns, and some say they may never return.
