Why This Blog?

In the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene we’re simply receiving more information than we can possibly broadcast on the VPR airwaves. As a service to listeners and all Vermonters, we’ve decided to aggregate it and publish it here to distribute the information as quickly as possible.

Some of it is press releases from organizations, non-profits, and state agencies. Some of it is information sent to us by listeners. This isn’t meant to be a news site (see VPR.net and the other great Vermont news organizations for that). We also don’t want to duplicate the amazing efforts of citizens and organizations who have stepped up to help their fellow citizens (hat tip to #VTReponse and many others). We’re simply trying to share information as quickly as we receive it.

If you have news to share, post it here or email news@vpr.net.
