Honolulu, Hawaii, February 06, 2015 — Agricultural producers whose operations suffered severe physical losses caused by high winds and flooding that occurred January 2-3, 2015 in the counties of Hawaii, Maui and Honolulu may qualify for a Farm Service Agency (FSA) Emergency Physical Loss Loan.

Farm Service Agency State Executive Director, Diane Ley noted, “Storm conditions in the first week of January brought extreme winds and flash flooding in some areas which resulted in significant damages to farm structures and large trees being brought down. Clean up and repairs can be costly and beyond the capacity of some businesses to manage on their own; hence, FSA is making available its Emergency Physical Loss Loan to operators who may need assistance.”

For more information about emergency and other loan program option, contact a local FSA County Office. The deadline to apply for the Emergency Physical Loss Loan is September 30, 2015.
