Prewett said the storm wasn’t entirely unwelcome.
“One thing that helped as far as the rain damage was that it was very dry before this came and the ground absorbed the water pretty quickly,” he said. “Some areas got 3.5 inches of rain and you’d never know it.”
Citrus damage still is unknown, Prewett said. Fruit is about marble-size at this point in the growing season.
“We do see some citrus leaves on the ground, but with the fruit being so small, it’s hard to tell,” he said.
