State, federal and local agencies, in conjunction with farming industry groups, will host a one-day Agriculture Recovery Center in Pottawattamie County noon to 8 p.m. June 13 to help Iowans recover from spring tornado and storm damage.

Additional Agriculture Recovery Centers are planned for Union and Polk counties. The walk-through events, designed as resource fairs, will provide information on addressing agricultural or rural needs that are not covered by standard programs offered by FEMA or the state of Iowa. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Iowa Insurance Division and other government agencies are working with industry organizations such as Iowa Pork Producers, Iowa Soybean and Iowa Cattlemen to ensure unmet needs are identified and resources are shared. 

The first event is noon to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 13, here:
