Keith Tidball, director of the Extension Disaster Education Network, put together some a list of resources and actions steps to assist farmers with dealing with Winter Storm Stella.
As the recent winter storm loses steam and thoughts turn towards digging out, Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Disaster Education Network (NY EDEN - http://eden.cce.cornell.edu) continues to assist the citizens of New York state with helpful resources.
Examples of evidence-based resources being distributed throughout the state before, during, and after the storm via the Cooperative Extension System include:
- Farmstead Recovery Checklist: Snow Load & Barn Collapse
- Roof Ice Damming and Attic Condensation Problems
- Preparing for the Thaw
- Heavy Snow Loads and Agricultural Buildings
- Do’s and Don’ts for Barn Snow Removal
Also note that the Cornell Cooperative Extension Disaster Education Network hosts an active Twitter account where timely information is posted beyond the resources above, as well as updates and situation reports as incidents unfold. Find the Twitter account at https://twitter.com/CCE_Disaster
