More than half of evacuees from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami feel local recovery from the disaster has been insufficient, according to results of a Kyodo News survey released Thursday.

The rate of respondents who said recovery has not been substantial was 54 percent in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures combined. Among the three prefectures severest hit by the disaster, the rate was highest at 73 percent in Fukushima, where a nuclear crisis occurred.
