Flooding Causes Big Problems for Farmers

Written by on June 20, 2019

Flooding is again a concern as rain continues to fall.


The forecast is calling for more rain through the morning hours. We’ll get a bit of a break this afternoon, and look for sunny skies Friday.


Scattered showers and thunderstorms are back in the forecast for the weekend.


Road closed signs remain out in various locations around Hardin County and around the region.


Do not attempt to cross roads covered with water.


Law enforcement agencies as well as the officials at the National Weather Service remind to heed the advice to Turn Around, Don’t Drown.


Delayed planting, and flooded fields is certainly adversely impacting area farmers.


Listen to Public Eye this weekend on WKTN for a conversation with Mark Badertscher, Agricultural and Natural Resources Educator with the Hardin County OSU Extension Office.


He will give an update on the current situation with farmers around the county.
