WENDLAND: Strain wants the U.S. agriculture secretary to make a disaster declaration for the rural farming parishes that got flooded. That would unlock some federal money and programs. But one problem is the state doesn’t know exactly how much was lost. Right now, it’s $110 million and rising. Kurt Guidry calculated that number. He’s an economist with Louisiana State University’s AgCenter.

.

KURT GUIDRY: We can go and we can estimate and we can determine with pretty good accuracy how many houses were flooded because once the damage is done, it’s done, right?

.

WENDLAND: But he says with agriculture, rain after the flood can cause almost as many problems as the flood itself. It’s not the first time Guidry has been tasked with this job. This is the third major flood in Louisiana this year. And in a state with declining oil and gas revenue, agriculture is more important to the economy. Revenue has doubled over the past decade as more farmers get into soybeans and corn. But Strain worries that policy will have to catch up if current weather patterns continue.

.

STRAIN: How do you prepare for 24 inches of rain in 24 hours? How do you do that? How can we minimize future flooding based on what we believe a weather pattern that could continue for a while? We know we’re in a time of more intense weather patterns.

.

WENDLAND: Though Richard’s losses will be above $100,000, he can rely on his other crops to bring in some money. And if it floods again…
