More of Kentucky Designated Drought Disaster Areas

More Kentucky counties have been designated as drought disaster areas, Gov. Steve Beshear announced Wednesday. U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack notified Beshear that Breckinridge and Grayson counties have been upgraded to primary disaster areas. Both were classified as contiguous areas before, Beshear's office said.
