Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Rhonda Garrison to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

On Monday, Commissioner Troxler did an aerial survey of portions of Eastern North Carolina to view damage caused by Hurricane Matthew. He was amazed by the magnitude of the flooding and said there is “catastrophic damage to farming operations all across the East.”

Commissioner Troxler said the amount of water he saw was unbelievable and that recovery will take a long time.
