Weathers says 2015 yields many 'raw emotions' in farmers

Weathers says 2015 yields many 'raw emotions' in farmers: South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers is the state's lead agricultural official, but he is also a Bowman row-crop farmer.

The historic floods last month dumped 15 inches of rain on his farm, leaving him wondering if there will be any crop to harvest this year.

"This is a lot more difficult than most of the disasters," he said. "We face a lot of decisions right around harvest time. A lot of timing issues makes it the worst time it could happen."

Weathers got a bird's-eye view of the storm immediately following the heavy rains.

What he saw were thousands of farm acres under water, farm buildings standing in the midst of waters and farm roads washed away.
