  • USA. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has declared 913 U.S. counties as disaster areas, since January.
    • “There is no question the United States has been hit with a number of unique and rather significant disasters over the last several months,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in a press conference on August 8. “Historic wildfires in the Southwest, historic numbers of tornadoes in the South and Southeast, extraordinary drought, and flooding conditions in the Midwest have really challenged us.”
    • “Just this year, 913 counties have been declared disaster areas.”
    • “We’ve begun to pay indemnities on crop insurance. We anticipate the numbers will grow significantly but, as of today, (the Risk Management Agency) has already paid out $693 million.” Vilsack added.
