Casey Welch, a local dental hygienist, arrived in Kathmandu, Nepal for a dental care trip three days before the earthquake claiming more than 8,000 lives and causing 17,000 injuries struck on April 25, 2015. She was trapped in the country for five days, and this April she's going back to complete her mission with the Global Dental Relief organization.
"I heard a huge crack and I thought it was thunder and lightning," Welch said. "I thought this is really weird, the sky is really blue, why is it thundering? Then everything just started rolling and moving, there was such an unnatural feel to everything. I was in the street and so scooters and motorcycles and cars just started flipping over. The ground just started literally to tear open like a sheet."
