Deadline nears for farmers affected by April's tornadoes

MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

April's tornado's tore through hundreds of acres of planting space in Madison County.

The current estimated cost for debris cleanup to farms is around $415,000 but that estimate is expected to triple once fence damage is figured into the cost.

Madison County Farm Service Agency Executive Director Thomas Atkinson said farmers are running out of time to report losses or damages.

"If you had debris cleanup or damage related to the tornado outbreak and have not made an application, July 8 is the deadline. Also report crop acreage. That deadline is next Friday, July 15," said Atkinson.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service is also making 3.8 million dollars available for Alabama farmers. The first round of applications must be turned in by Friday. This will help to pay for some damages caused by the April 27th tornado.
