Governor Matt Blunt is asking the U.S. Agriculture Department to declare nine counties in southeast Missouri disaster areas. The Governor says the nine counties were especially hard-hit by last month’s storms. On the Governor’s list: the counties of Butler, Cape Girardeau, Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Perry, Ripley, and Stoddard. The disaster declaration would make Missouri farmers eligible for emergency low interest loans.
