The Drought of '99 has devastated crops, poultry, and livestock in many parts of the State. But help will soon be on the way.
Governor Gilmore convened a meeting of the State Drought Monitoring Task Force yesterday and they agreed the greatest need at this time is help in transporting hay and water to livestock.
So Gilmore authorized the Virginia National Guard to help with the transport.
He also directed the state agriculture department to immediately identify and provide donated hay and water to drought stricken farmers.
