Gov. Roy Cooper issued an order last week to aid farmers from possible impacts from Hurricane Dorian. A press release from the Governor’s Office said some farmers are already taking action to harvest and transfer crops to protect them from potential damage from Hurricane Dorian. The Governor last Friday issued an order that waives some transportation restrictions to help farmers as well as support relief efforts if needed. The Governor said he issued the order after consultation with Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. Gov. Cooper encouraged state residents to keep an eye on the forecast and prepare for any impacts from Dorian.
