The list of damages continues to grow in Florida after Hurricane Irma.

Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam took an aerial tour of orange groves the southwest portion of the state.

“It’s still too early to know the full extent of the damage to Florida citrus.“But after touring groves on foot and by air, it’s clear that our signature crop has suffered serious and devastating losses from Hurricane Irma,” Putnam said.

U.S. Senator Bill Nelson said citrus growers are telling him that 75 percent crop so far has been destroyed by Irma.
