MIAMI — Citrus growers in central Florida reported ice damage to their orange fruit and groves Wednesday after overnight temperatures dropped to bone-chilling in some areas of the citrus belt.

"There was definitely some damage," said Ray Royce, executive director of the Highlands County Citrus Growers Association in central Florida.

"We did have some areas that had damage last night," Royce said.

"It's too early to tell whether or not we'll have significant fruit drop, but certainly we're going to have juice loss within some fruit in some areas," he said.
