Fukushima operator to pay 100,000 pounds to family of 102-year-old who killed himself when told to flee | 20 Feb 2018 | The operator of the Fukushima nuclear power plant [Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)] has been ordered to pay 15.2 million yen (100,000 pounds) in compensation to the family of a man who killed himself when he was told to flee after tsunami waves overwhelmed the reactor. Thousands of people were told to leave their homes in April 2011, a month after the tsunami sent the Fukushima plant into meltdown. 102-year-old Fumio Okubo, who lived in a village 40km (25 miles) from the plant, was among those told to leave. After he received the evacuation order, he took his own life.
