Evacuees live in partitioned "rooms" at a shelter in Kamaishi in Iwate prefecture a month after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami hit the northeastern coast of Japan. Japan upgraded its nuclear emergency to a maximum seven on an international scale of atomic crises on April 12, the first time the highest ranking has been invoked since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.
