Crop Disaster Declared for 79 Additional  Counties in 6 States

Worsening Drought has prompted the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to designate an additional 79 counties across six states as crop disaster areas in four separate designations on May 7, 2014.

Those States are Texas (39 counties), Oregon (7), Oklahoma (10), Nevada (2) , Kansas (17) and Idaho (4).

Several counties have been designated as crop disaster areas more than once due to multiple crop disasters.

Drought Disasters 2014

Beginning January 10, 2014 USDA has declared at least 1,536 separate crop disasters across 21 states. Most of those designations are due to the worsening drought.

  • Those states are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah. [FIRE-EARTH has documented all of the above listings.]

Notes:
i. USDA trigger point for a countywide disaster declaration is 30 percent crop loss on at least one crop.

ii. The total number of counties designated as agricultural disaster areas includes both primary and contiguous disaster areas.

iii. Counties may have been designated crop disaster areas more than once due to multiple disasters.

iv. The U.S. has a total of 3,143 counties and county-equivalents.

v. The disaster designations posted above were approved by USDA on My 7, 2014.
