Crop insurance available for farmers

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Virginia farmers who lost crops because of hurricane Irene and tropical storm Lee will get some help from the state.

Federal crop insurance will be available for crops lost during the storms.

Crops that got flooded have to be destroyed because there could have been animal or human waste that contaminated them.
