More stories on the Midwestern flooding

While it’s a clear and sunny day here in the Southeast, farmers in the Midwest are still struggling with the impacts of the catastrophic flooding that hit in March. Some of them may never return to farming after seeing their herds, barns and houses washed away and their fields buried under feet of river silt and icebergs. Here are a few of the recent stories I have seen discussing impacts of those floods.
