With the flood waters having receded, what remains is drying out and damage recovery.
“This one hurt because some of the crops were out,” said Harrison County farmer Chapie Mastin.
Mastin estimates a $12,000 loss on the corn crops he planted only a few weeks before the South Fork Licking River rose to flood level on Sunday, May 2.
“Natural disasters hurt everybody,” Mastin said, adding that even those crops not on river-bottom farms suffered damage.
