The plant and homes on Putney’s main street have been evacuated, and U.S. Route 5 through Putney and some side roads were closed. Those who were evacuated were taken to the Putney Central School. Neal CHarnoff talks with VPR’s Susan Keese, who is at the Putney General Store. (To hear the interview, click on the “Listen” icon.)
