If all that summer rain ruined your crop, Uncle Sam wants to help.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says farmers in every county of Vermont are eligible for emergency loans to help cope with a series of natural disasters this year.

The USDA announced yesterday that the disasters include excessive rain, flooding, flash flooding, high winds, hail, lightning and tornadoes that occurred in June through August.

Farmers have eight months to apply for loans to help cover part of their actual losses.
