Farmers Prepare For Hanna

Tropical Storm Hanna is forcing frantic farmers to pick their crops before the storm has the chance to ruin them.

Corn is getting ready to be dried on Arthur Farms in Jones County after it was picked early Thursday morning. Jimmy Arthur runs the farm and says he's trying to harvest before Hanna hits.
Regardless of how much he picks before the storm, he said he's still going to be way short of last years yield because of the hot dry summer..

Arthur also raises over 100 cattle. He says that as long as the electric fence stays in place, so will his cows.
