Wasco County Asks For Disaster Declaration For November Freeze

Wasco County Commissioners have sent a letter to Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber asking for a disaster declaration for orchardists impacted by November’s freezing temperatures.  In the letter, Commissioners point out some local orchards suffered damage with the potential of significant crop loss due to the freeze that took place the week of November 14.  Temperatures were at historic lows for that time of year, and Commissioners say losses that occurred as a result could be disastrous for local fruit growers.  A disaster declaration by the Governor could allow growers to obtain low interest loans.
