Washington County Declares Agricultural Disaster
Washington County VA announced that the county is experiencing a drought related agriucultural disaster Tuesday night. The Washington County Board of Supervisors voted to ask Governor McDonnell for assistance after 6 weeks of drought like conditions have hurt the crops and incomes of area farmers. According to Board member Phil Blevins, over 1600 Washington County farms have been affected by the recent rash of extremely high temperatures and the relative lack of rain. He says the recent rainfall has only washed off the hardened soil destroying crops. Couple that with the hightened price of corn feed from the Midwest, and farmers are truly facing tough times. Washington County farmer Michael Countiss hopes the announcement of the agriculutural disaster will prompt others in the area to help their local farmers. He says all he can hope for is a lot more rain. (hra)
