Red Cross asks for more funds for nuke plan

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) -- The Vermont and New Hampshire chapter of the American Red Cross is requesting more than $700,000 for its role in providing aid to 6,000 people who could be evacuated in case of an emergency at the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports ( Larry Crist of the chapter says there's a significant gap between what the response plan calls for and what the Red Cross can reasonably provide in the way of equipment and staffing.

The funds would come from Entergy, which owns and operates the plant.

The Red Cross says it can only accommodate 3,000 evacuees in the 10-mile radius around the Vernon plant.
