  • Gov't to reclassify Fukushima no-entry zones possibly in April

    TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The government told municipalities around the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant on Sunday that it plans to reclassify no-entry zones, possibly on April 1, according to estimated annual radiation exposure, government officials said.

    The government plans to reclassify the current two-tier no-entry zones, designated last April, into three categories, including one covering areas with estimated annual radiation exposure of 50 millisieverts or higher to which residents are unlikely to be able to return.
