NEW THIS MORNING --

ANOTHER FLORIDA ICON IS ALSO AT RISK THIS MORNING: PALM TREES.

PALM TREE NURSERIES HAVE BEEN WORKING THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT, USING IRRIGATION SYSTEMS TO COVER THEIR TREES IN WATER.

THIS KEEPS THE TREES AT A STEADY TEMPERATURE, AND PREVENTS THEM FROM FREEZING IF IT GETS BELOW 32 DEGREES.

BUT THIS STRATEGY REQUIRES THE CONSTANT FLOW OF WATER THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE NIGHT--

SOMETHING NOT ALL NURSERIES ARE ABLE TO DO. Return to index of stories...
