» Last no-go zone reorganized in Fukushima

More than 26 months after the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant triggered by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, Futaba town, the last no-go zone, has been reorganized into zones where residents’ return is viewed as difficult and those where preparations can be made for the lifting of evacuation orders.

The zones where residents’ return is viewed as difficult due to estimated annual radiation exposure exceeding 50 millisieverts cover 96 percent of the town’s former population and area.

The zones where preparations can be made for the lifting of evacuation orders are badly damaged by tsunami in 2011 and most of housings were washed away.
