Desha County just experienced the worst flooding anyone I have talked to can remember. It affected our housing, our crops, and our infrastructure. Let me assure everyone, your County Government is working to find every possible means of helping our recovery process and making it as painless as possible. Indications are that some of the recovery will be up to us. I believe that God will help us through maybe our faith based Organizations with food and residences. I am hopeful that our state will find ways to give us badly needed aid and I feel sure that our governor will provide some help to survive and don't be mistaken we need our young farmers.


I have told everyone in our meetings from the Governor, Senators, and Congressman, that the Desha County people are resilient and we will bounce back from this event. The people that were least affected will help the people more affected and we will recover. We will work together and we will recover.
