Florida Hit by Cold Air mass

 

  In January, 2003,the eastern two.thirds of the United States was at the mercy of abitterly cold air mass that has endangered Florida’s citrus trees,choked northernharbors with ice and left bewildered residents of North Carolina’s Outer Banksdigging out of up to a foot of snow.

  The ice chill deepened as temperatures fell to the single digits。in most of me。South,with allunfamiliar dip below the freezing mark as far south as parts of interior SouthFlorida.Temperatures in Florida plunged,with West Palm Beach dropping to a record low of 2 degrees.

  “We couldn’t believe how cold it was,”said Martin King,who arrived this week in Orlando。from England.“We brought shorts,T·shirt,and I had to go out and buy another coat.”

  The temperature plunge posed a threat to Florida’s US$9.1billion-a-year citrus crop.More of which is still on the trees.Growers werehurrying to harvest as much of the fruit as possible before it was damaged bycold.

  “Time is of the essenceⅢin getting fruit to the plant,”said Tom Rogers,a citrus grower who expected to see damage to oranges andgrapefruit at that time.

  In Florida,Governor Jeb Bush signed an emergency order to eliminate theweight limit Oil trucks SO citrus growers could get as much fruit to market aspossible.

  Casey Pace,a spokeswoman for Florida Citrus Mutual,said growers hadsprayed trees with sprinklers。which created a layer of ice and helped maintain a temperature nearfreezing.Citrus trees are considered in danger of damage if the temperaturedrops below minus 2 degrees Celsius for four hours or more.Snow ranging from adusting to up to 30 centimeters “blanketed“ the Carolinas,Tennessee and partsof Virginia.
