Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown Leaves Families Divided

Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown Leaves Families Divided Play

March 9 (Bloomberg) -- Residents of Minamisoma, in Japan's Fukushima prefecture, talk about their lives one year after a record earthquake and ensuing tsunami caused nuclear meltdowns at the nearby Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant. In September last year, restrictions on some areas near the crippled power station were lifted, but the fear of radiation exposure has made thousands flee their homes, leaving families living beyond the 20-kilometer (12.6-mile) exclusion zone around the plant divided.
