FORT STOCKTON - Local farmers could see some help after a devastating drought this year.

The Fort Stockton Farm Service Agency office is taking applications now from farmers in about a dozen area counties who need help covering damage done by the wicked weather.

Officials say farmers could be eligible for loans of up to 100-percent of their actual losses.

Applications will be accepted until July, but officials say to avoid delays, get the applications in now.
