Report: Maine Unprepared for Oil Train Disaster
There have been no large-scale shipments of oil by rail in Maine since last October. But, in a story published by the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, such shipments could resume at any time, and that much of the state remains unprepared for a rail oil disaster like the one with struck Lac Megantic, Quebec last July.
Marina Villeneuve, who researched and wrote the story for the center, sat down for a conversation.
Marina Villeneuve's story was published online, and in several Maine newspapers.
