On May 4, according to Fukushima Minpo Newspaper, the government decided to let the evacuees return home inside the nuclear no-go zone temporarily starting next week, rather than from mid-May it initially planned.
The government also decided that the evacuees can bring back their cars and pets. Cars are likely to be out of battery, so battery chargers will be supplied. It is estimated there are more than 9,000 vehicles within the area. As for pets, the government will organize a way to transport pets the evacuees wish to take with, all at once. But this will likely to take place sometime end of May.
