Sendai evacuation concerns — NBC News

This article contains a great video that reviews the evacuation materials that were given to the Sendai population in case another Fukushima accident occurs at the Sendai Nuclear Power Plant. Residents who live closer to the power plant received a convoluted evacuation booklet that is over 100 pages long. Residents complain that their main evacuation route is along the sea coast, and if a tsunami hit, the road would be closed down, leaving them stranded. Kyushu Electric, the operator of the Sendai plant, hasn’t conducted an evacuation drill with the public for over two years and has no plans to do so in the near future.
