TODAY ON AGDAY
OCTOBER 30, 2012

HURRICANE SANDY:

Good morning I’m Clinton Griffiths.  Hurricane Sandy barrels through the northeast and damage estimates will soon begin to mount.

CROP PROGRESS:

While we won’t get the latest crop progress, as of last week Virginia only had a quarter of its cotton crop harvested...what’s left is now at risk. And roughly half of the peanuts were still in the ground. Both crops had quality ratings in the mid 90's.

NEW YORK BROADCASTER:

Residents all along the East Coast spent the last week getting prepared. I spoke earlier with Tom Cassidy of the AG Radio Network. He covers farm country from New York to Maryland. He says after last year's bout with Irene, farmers are being proactive.

CROP WATCH:

It's not just the East Coast preparing for this massive storm. Sandy is expected to blow inland for hundreds of miles. Tyne Morgan is in the AgDay weather center with Mike Hoffman.

CROP INSURANCE RECORD:

Early estimates say more than 60 million American’s will likely be impacted by Sandy. Damages are already being forecast in the range of 2 to 100 billion dollars.
