"On the afternoon of Friday, March 11, the Takata High School swim team walked a half-mile to practice at the city’s nearly new natatorium, overlooking the broad sand beach of Hirota Bay. That was the last anyone saw of them. But that is not unusual: In this town of 23,000, more than one in 10 people is either dead or has not been seen since that afternoon, when a tsunami flattened three-quarters of the city."
