Miyagi, one of the three Tohoku region prefectures hardest hit by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, has completed construction of temporary housing for people affected by the disaster, leaving Fukushima as the only prefecture yet to meet that need, as Iwate finished such construction earlier.

On Sunday, people started to move into the final six buildings to be completed, comprising three stories — unseen in other disaster-hit areas — for 144 households in Onagawa. The town, surrounded by mountains, decided to build multistory structures in a ballpark to make full use of available flat land.
