This Sunday, officials will lift an evacuation advisory for 142 locations in the city of Minamisoma, which will affect 152 households, Yosuke Takagi, state minister of economy, trade and industry, said this weekend during a briefing to residents.

Amid complaints from residents, Takagi said the decision was based on rules that allow hot spot designations to be lifted once radiation levels fall following decontamination work.
