USDA’s Farm Service Agency is happy to announce that producers can apply, starting January 6 until March 5, for the new quality loss Adjustment program, or QLA.

The QLA program assists crop and forage producers who suffered a quality loss due to natural disasters in 2018 or 2019.

Losses must have been a result of qualifying drought, excessive moisture, flooding, hurricane, snowstorm, tornado, typhoon, volcanic activity, or wildfire.

A harvested eligible crop must have had at least 5% quality loss reflected through a quality discount, or forage crops, a nutrient loss (such as total digestible nutrients).

Please contact your local FSA office to discuss eligibility, calculate payments, and submit your application. Our FSA team can assist with forms and documentation required to apply.

NWS Virtual Skywarn Class – Lamar, Hopkins, Delta, Fannin @ online
Jan 26 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

The 2021 severe weather season is not too far away, and the National Weather Service and local public safety officials want you to be ready.

The National Weather Service will be conducting a free, virtual severe weather training class for Lamar County on Tuesday, January 26​​, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Officially called the SKYWARN Storm Spotter Class, the program will be in partnership with the Paris Police Department and Fannin County Office​ of Emergency Management. You can find the registration for this online class at​             https://www.weather.gov/fwd/skywarnmap. They are combining this virtual class with Delta, Fannin, and Hopkins counties. 

This class is for established storm spotters, anyone interested in severe weather, and anyone who wants to learn more about North and Central Texas’ extreme weather threats and how to prepare. It is part of a regional severe weather preparedness campaign. You can find other classes in the region on the full schedule at https://www.weather.gov/fwd/skywarnmap. 

This year’s program will feature an in-depth review and study of the various threats posed by severe thunderstorms. The program will also review thunderstorm characteristics and features associated with severe and non-severe storms. Additionally, the program highlights stringent weather safety and how you can report severe weather information back to the National Weather Service and local public safety officials. 

“By participating in this training session, you will gain a better understanding of Texas’ severe weather season,” says Tom Bradshaw, Meteorologist-in-Charge of the NWS Fort Worth Office. “Waiting until storms are on your doorstep is not the time to start thinking about severe weather preparedness. We hope you attend these free sessions to learn more about the severe storms that impact the region every year.” 

The Lamar County, severe weather program is one of several training sessions the Fort Worth National Weather Service Office will conduct between January and March 2021. The National Weather Service in Fort Worth provides forecasts, warnings, and weather services for 46 counties in North and Central Texas.
