Letter mentions that the first "contingent" of evacuees were leaving on Monday, and the letter provides information about evacuation plans of their families, as well, as relatives and friends. The Sumida family is scheduled after that. The family decided to adhere to evacuation orders since they didn't have enough money to relocate on their own. She states that the family decided not to sell their home that they owned for 25 year since they couldn't get a good price for the property.
