As the eastern seaboard awaits the arrival of Hurricane Florence, the West Virginia University Extension Service has experts in agriculture to help producers keep their animals and equipment safe from flood waters, as well as experts in the Safety and Health Extension to address worker safety and flood rescue who have compiled information from governmental agencies to keep the general public safe.
“As we watch the path of Hurricane Florence, we can see there’s an impending risk of flooding in West Virginia. It’s important for farmers and landowners to take necessary precautions now to lessen the effects of any potential damage.”
