Pendleton, Two Other WV Counties Could Get Aid for Storm Damage

The state of West Virginia says farmers in three border counties may qualify for emergency loans because of tornadoes and other severe weather in Ohio, Kentucky and Virginia.

The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management says Wayne, Hancock and Pendleton counties qualify because they abut counties that have been declared disaster areas.

The agency says emergency loans are limited to severe physical losses only and farmers are limited to $500,000 in emergency loans.

The state says the U.S. Department of Agriculture is notifying affected farmers.
