No Crop Damage In Florida

By  | 

Florida's citrus growers have dodged the season's first major threat to crops.

Thursday's cold snap dropped temperatures below freezing, but not for long enough to cause widespread damage.

One growers' group says the cold could actually be a boon
because it slows growth and makes trees stronger.

Temperatures in many areas of northern Florida dropped into the
20s early Thursday. Snow flurries were reported near Daytona Beach,
the first in Florida since 2006.
