BATON ROUGE - Three north Louisiana parishes bordering Arkansas are now designated natural disaster areas as a result of a recent drought.

State Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain said Wednesday that the parishes are: Claiborne, Morehouse and Union.

A federal disaster designation makes farm operators in the areas eligible to be considered for certain assistance from the Farm Service Agency, including low interest FSA emergency loans.
