Fukushima is still struggling to get back to it normal state since the earthquake that struck northeastern Japan on 11 March 2011 (over 7 years ago) and the tsunami which triggered the meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear PowerPlant in Japan.
This left thousands dead and many missing with thousands of buildings destroyed and damaged. Regions close to the power plant are still highly contaminated. Workers are making progress by cleaning up the contaminated region. However, the Japanese Government has not declared Fukushima habitable for humans.
The long struggle back to normalcy is ongoing at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear PowerPlant, located in Japan. Many workers are making slow progress in cleaning up the contaminated land surroundings. It's infamous reactor; evacuees are deciding whether to return to homes sealed off since the accident five years ago.
The power plant remains a dangerous disaster zone, with workers just beginning the complicated, risky job of locating the melted fuel and figuring out how to remove it. The dilemma lies in determining how much radiation in their former home is safe. The Fukushima's plant owner is being sued over plans to end compensation payments for those who choose not to return home. Specific areas will remain off limits indefinitely.
