Government Declares Twelve Texas Counties Disaster Areas Due To Drought

 Twelve Texas counties were declared disaster areas by the federal government because of drought losses, high temperatures or both this year.

The designation means eligible farmers in those counties and several others nearby can apply for low-interest Agricultural Department loans. The U-S-DA made the designations earlier in the week, but corrected them today.

The counties are Crockett, Dallas, Gonzales, Henderson, Irion, Kaufman, Nueces, Parker, Reagan, Rockwall, Upton and Van Zandt.

The nearby counties where farmers also are eligible are: Anderson, Aransas, Bastrop, Caldwell, Cherokee, Collin, Crane, De Witt, Denton, Ector, Fayette, Freestone, Glassock, Guadalupe, Hood, Hunt, Jim Wells, Johnson, Karnes, Kleberg, Lavaca, Midland, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Pecos, San Patricio, Schleicher, Smith, Sutton, Tarrant, Terrell, Tom Green, Val Verde, Wilson, Wise and Wood.

Farmers have eight months to apply for loans. Information can be obtained at U-S-DA Service Centers.
