USDA encourages farmers, ranchers to prepare for ‘Tropical Storm Beta’

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reminded farmers and ranchers about the tropical Storm Beta that the department is eager to help them with the help of programs that provide assistance in the wake of disasters.

Notably, Beta weakened to a tropical depression as it parked itself over the Texas coast, raising concerns of large-scale flooding in Houston and other areas.

Meanwhile, USDA joined hands with FEMA and other disaster-focused organizations in order to create the Disaster Resource Center.
