Seven counties in northern Missouri and five counties in eastern Missouri have been designated as primary disaster areas by the U.S. Department of Agriculture due to severe storms, straight-line winds and flooding occurring this spring.
Affected counties include Clark, Harrison Mercer, Putnam, Schuyler, Scotland and Worth, which sustained damages April 17 to 30, and Lincoln, Marion, Pike, Ralls, and St. Charles, where damage occurred April 16 to May 5. Farmers who suffered qualified losses are now eligible for low-interest loans and other federal assistance, including Farm Service Agency emergency loans. In addition to crop and livestock losses, producers should document the losses or additional costs experienced as a result of weather related events during the dates when the disaster occurred.
