|Fukushima Temporary Housing|
Construction of public housing in Fukushima Prefecture is facing significant delays. The housing is meant for those forced to leave their homes after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and the ensuing nuclear accident.
Fukushima Prefecture plans to build around 2,700 units for people affected by the earthquake and tsunami. 4,900 are planned for those affected by the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.
But only 44 percent of the units for quake and tsunami victims were ready for occupancy at the end of February.
Only 5 percent has been completed for the nuclear evacuees.
