Rains force closing of Farm Tech show
As of 10 a.m. today, the Farm Technology Days Executive Committee shut down the show -- six hours ahead of schedule.
Heavy morning rains have filled the grounds with water, and visitors are no longer being allowed into parking areas.
FTD Executive Secretary Greg Andrews said organizers are working with exhibitors to help them close their displays.
Gates opened at 9 a.m. as usual, but the Sheriff's Department only allowed visitors to park along ditches.
