Gov. Greg Abbott urges disaster designation for counties affected by recent blizzard

Amarillo, TX - Texas leaders are trying to help area farmers who suffered devastating losses during the Christmas weekend blizzard. 

Area dairy farmers lost an estimated 35,000 dairy cows during the storm.

Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller are now urging the U.S. Department of Agriculture to grant a disaster designation for 11 West Texas counties. This would allow these counties to receive federal aid to rebuild and make up for losses during the storm.

Counties designated in our area include Castro, Deaf Smith, Hale and Parmer counties.
