No returning of 18% Fukushima evacuees
Tokyo: Nearly 20 percent of evacuees from areas near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan will not be able to return to their homes even ten years after the disaster, according to a government estimate.
According to The Japan Times, the effects of the ongoing work to dispose the radioactive materials in the communities are not taken into consideration owing to which almost 18 percent residents in 11 municipalities will not be able to go back.
According to the estimate, in the towns of Okuma where part of the nuclear plant stands, for example, 81 percent of the residents may have difficulty returning home. Almost 49 percent of evacuees from the town of Futaba, which hosts the remaining part of the plant, will not be able to return home. The government made the estimate available during a meeting with local governments in Fukushima Prefecture, including the 11 municipalities, as part of a plan of rehabilitation.
