Boone added to disaster list

Indianapolis — Boone County has been added to the growing list of Indiana counties declared natural disaster relief areas as the result of drought.

Indiana Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman this week announced that 14 additional counties, including Boone, had been added to 36 counties named primary natural disaster areas earlier this month because of drought.

“As drought spreads havoc, particularly for those in our agriculture sector who provide the basics, we continue to work with our partners to minimize the impact, Skillman said.

Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of the declaration to apply for loans to help cover part of their actual losses.
