Battling Mother Nature
The rain can't come soon enough for farmers and forestry workers who are battling mother nature. Farmers in our region are being forced to water their crops by irrigation. A measure, that some farmers said costs them about 10,000 dollars a week. Dry conditions have lead to wildfires on Florida's east coast. Division of Forestry officials said smoke from those fires has descended upon North Central Florida. Hazing conditions are expected to last through Friday morning.
