Nemaha County Being Considered For Disaster Declaration

Kansas State Emergency Board Chairman Adrian Polansky is recommending that Governor Sam Brownback request that 37 additional Kansas counties be declared as disaster areas due, in part, to drought. The request would be made to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, and would include, Nemaha County. If approved qualifying producers in the affected counties would be eligible for USDA-FSA emergency loans.

 

The recommendation follows the State Emergency Board’s review, and verification, of at least a 30-percent loss of one or more crops due to drought, extreme heat, high winds and wildfire plaguing a large portion of the state.
