Hurricane Irma Survey

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 by tamara

Dear Mutual Members and Friends:

I hope this finds you well and in recovery mode. We are eyeing the current storm activity in the Gulf and are cautiously optimistic none will follow the path of Irma.

Thank you so much to those of you who have answered our short Irma damage survey. The information will go a long way to provide Legislators, the industry and officials with a baseline to create a financial assistance program as well as support the various legislative asks we are pursuing at the state and federal level to get citrus trees back in the ground.

To those of you who have not sent us the survey, please take a few minutes and do it now. I cannot emphasize how important it is to have this information quickly and accurately.

Send your answers to floridacitrusmutual@yahoo.com .

Questions:

1) What county(s) and how many acres do you manage?

2) Estimate total fruit loss as a percentage

3) Estimate the acute wind damage to trees as a percentage

4) Estimate acres in standing water as total acres and as a percentage

Please forward this email to every grower you know – they may not be on our distribution list and we need as much data as possible. We hope that you can favor us with a response by Thursday September 21. However, we will incorporate subsequent responses.

Thanks for your help on this and we will keep you updated as information comes in.

Regards,

Mike Sparks
Executive VP/CEO
