Government to Lift Evacuation Order for Kawamata Next March 31

On October 28, the nuclear emergency response headquarters of the Japanese national government decided to lift the evacuation order for Kawamata Town in Fukushima Prefecture, effective on March 31, 2017.

The order covers areas where living is currently not permitted, as well as those where the evacuation order will soon be lifted.

Last June, the headquarters decided to lift an evacuation order for part of Iitate Village, also in Fukushima Prefecture. Starting in April 2017, there will thus be five municipalities—the towns of Tomioka, Okuma, Namie, and Futaba, along with Iitate—where evacuation orders remain in effect for some areas.

Kawamata will be the seventh municipality to have its evacuation order lifted. The first was Tamura City in Fukushima Prefecture in April 2014.
