U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has called on the U.S. Department of Agriculture to issue an agriculture disaster declaration to send relief to farms in Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties where severe flooding isdestroying roads and bridges, isolating local dairy farms, and damaging feed, bunker silos and wells. The ongoing flooding also threatens to submerge farmland and poses a significant threat to livestock. Senator Gillibrand is calling for the swift disaster declaration, which could extend to additional counties as damagecontinues to be reported by local farm agencies. A secretarial disaster declaration can release federal resources that provide a range of assistance to farmers, including low-interest emergency loans, technicalassistance to repair damages and help to replenish lost livestock.
