Iowa FSA State Director Says Storm Hit Wide Area In Iowa

Tuesday’s storm cut a wide swath traveling across Southwest Iowa into the South Central part of the state dropping hail over a large area. Iowa State Farm Service Agency Director John Whitaker says hail and winds caused a lot of damage that will take several days to assess.
Whitaker says they’re still assessing any possible crop damage and that will take time as well to totally evaluate and see how much of an impact the storm had.
He says the first thing producers should do is contact their crop insurance agent and do that as soon as possible.
Whitaker says only growers who have certified or reported their crops should get in touch with their local FSA office if they have had their crop totally destroyed.
