Citrus Growers Prepare for the Freeze

Citrus growers across the state are getting ready for the freeze.

As Kevan Ramer has said, temperatures are expected to plummet to the mid-20's by Thursday night.

The big chill could damage crops.

So, orange growers are preparing as best as they can.

"It's always a concern, but I think that we've got our protection ready, we've got our crews ready, our water, our wind machines, and I think we'll be alright," says farmer John Gless.

Officials are also warning people to protect their pets and pipes during the freeze.
