U.N.D. Students Return Home from Japan

Posted: Updated:

  Five days after the earthquake in Japan, two U.N.D. students who lived through it are back home with their families.

  Melissa DeWall of Grand Forks and Brook Kubat of Langdon arrived at the Grand Forks Airport Tuesday night.

  Their families didn't know until a day after the earthquake, whether their kids were o.k..

  The two students were part of U.N.D.'S study abroad program and had been attending a University north of Tokyo.

Reporter: "Have you been watching what's been happening with the nuclear plants there? They weren't that far from it.

Vicki Kubat, Mother of Brooke Kubat: "No they weren't. The explosions.... it just seems it was getting closer to the University."

  It took 48 hours of traveling for the Kubat and Dewall to get home. They were worn out and emotionally drained and didn't feel like talking to reporters.

  Brooke Kubat's mother said, "she just wants to go home."

  Two other U.N.D. students, who were also at that Japanese University are also safe.

  Jared Ridl returned to his home in Bowman yesterday. Veronica Brummett of Shevlin, Minnesota is at her sister's home in Hawaii.
