盛岡市によりますと、午後7時半現在、2世帯5人が近くの児童センターで一夜を明かす予定だということです。

Is it 2 families that have no link composed of a total of 5 persons or a normal family(3 or 4 members) + the grandparent(s) (1 or 2 member(s)) ?

  • 世帯 is a whole word that means household/family no ? "火事で4世帯が焼死した。 Four families were killed in the fire." – Jirei Feb 4 '18 at 21:55
  • Yes you are right. Sorry about it. – Weijun Zhou Feb 4 '18 at 21:59

From the context of the story it can be assumed that they were from two separate households simply located in near proximity to the source of the explosion, for a total of 5 people. There is, however, no specific detail as to the makeup of these families and their relationship to one another (as this is likely not relevant to the story and in interest of privacy).
