USDA declares counties as disaster areas

Advertisement

Kansas

Gov. Sam Brownback received notice from the U.S. Department of Agriculture it has designated four Kansas counties as primary natural disaster areas because of losses caused by the combined effects of excessive rain, excessive heat and drought during the period of April 23 through Nov. 1, 2010. Those counties are Coffey, Osage, Shawnee and Wabaunsee counties.

The USDA also named Allen, Anderson, Douglas, Franklin, Geary, Greenwood, Jackson, Jefferson, Lyon, Morris, Pottawatomie, Riley, and Woodson Counties as contiguous disaster counties.

This designation makes farm operators in these counties eligible for assistance from the Farm Service Agency, provided they meet eligibility requirements. Such assistance includes FSA emergency loans and the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments Program. Local FSA offices can provide affected farmers with further information.
