At least 315 of the households evacuated after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear crisis have suffered from flooding and other damage caused by Typhoon Hagibis, which hit central, eastern and northeastern parts of Japan last month, an analysis by Kyodo News has shown.

The tally found that some people in Fukushima Prefecture had endured “double suffering” from the two major calamities. The prefectural government and municipalities hosting evacuees have yet to assess the extent of the damage brought by the typhoon.
