We are well over a month into the 2021 hurricane season. Tropical Storm Elsa is reminding us exactly what can happen in the state of Florida this time of year. Executive Director of the Highlands County Citrus Growers Association (HCCGA), Ray Royce, says with summer here, eyes now turn to the weather.

As for Tropical Storm Elsa, warnings and watches stretched up Florida’s west coast due to strong winds, rain and storm surge. Both state and federal emergency declarations have been issued for many Florida counties which will feel the brunt of the storm.
