Farmers urged to prepare for several days of heavy rain, possible hurricane conditions
Farmers across the state are urged to clear drainage ditches, secure signage and loose objects, stock up on fuel and feed to be prepared for days of wet weather that may be followed by hurricane conditions. If Hurricane Joaquin tracks close to the coast, it could cause trees to topple and create widespread power outages.
