Detroit, MI (WVLT) -- There were many Americans in Japan when the earthquake and tsunami hit, leaving families worried about their loved ones.

There are some good outcomes and happy homecomings, such as this one. A Michigan student was studying abroad in Tokyo during the earthquake but she finally came home after the disaster.

It was a big relief for the family of Ruby Harris when she finally made it home, safe. Ruby said she was in her dorm room when the earthquake hit, but despite the scare it put in her, she was reluctant to come home.

Once the threat of radiation began to worsen, she accepted the fact it was time to come home.
