Farmers and ranchers are among those likely to face winds of up to 74 mph from the Gulf coast from eastern Texas to Mississippi, where Hurricane Delta is expected to make landfall Friday evening and deliver up to 15 inches of rainfall and storm surge up to 11 feet inputs of Louisiana including the mouth of the Mississippi River. The storm is likely to spawn tornadoes in parts of southern Mississippi and Louisiana. It’s a call for farmers and ranchers to plan ahead to maintain food safety and prepare for the potential event of evacuating livestock. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has resources available to help those in Delta’s path plan ahead for how they’re most likely to be affected by the storm. Get ready.
