Ohio convoy delivers supplies

VERDIGRE, NE (Omaha World-Herald News Source) – It started out as a convoy 18 strong from northeast Ohio, and it grew as the trucks drove toward Nebraska.

Vehicles from across the United States are converging on the flood-ravaged state, filled with hay, livestock feed, food, and household goods.

Volunteers pulled in to Verdigre on Tuesday. While they were unloading, another semi arrived filled with toilet paper, diapers, and other baby supplies.

One volunteer told the Omaha World-Herald that they stayed an extra day to help deliver about 48 big bales of hay to a needy farmer in Columbus.

The Verdigre Stockyards is organizing farm supply drop-offs and then pushing them out as needed.
