Weld County Farm Wiped Out by Storm


Joe Miller is used to having a big crop on his vegetable farm in Platteville. But this year it will be slim pickings as the July 20th storm hailed out most of his crop.

Miller says two storms Monday night damaged his home, his cars and most importantly, his crops. Two-inch hail punched holes in melons and peppers, and shredded almost everything else.

The Weld County FSA says the storm damaged over 400 farms and ranches over 150 square miles, but does not have any estimate on the cost of the damage.
