The ongoing drought has led to agricultural disaster declarations in at least 21 counties in California.

Farmers and ranchers in the affected counties will become eligible to apply for low-interest loans. That money will help them overcome losses caused by the weather.

The most recent counties where disasters have been declared include Mariposa, Merced, and Stanislaus.
