FLORIDA CITRUS GROVES NOT DAMAGE BY HURRICANE ANDREW

 FLORIDA CITRUS GROVES NOT DAMAGE BY HURRICANE ANDREW
 LAKELAND, Fla., Aug. 28, 1992 /PRNewswire/ -- The Florida Department of Citrus said today that, contrary to some reports, the Florida citrus industry was extremely fortunate to emerge unscathed from Hurricane Andrew. Damage occurred south of our growing regions. The limited rain and wind in the citrus groves were not a problem.
 Our harvesting season will begin next month, and, barring any unforeseen circumstances, we expect bountiful crops of oranges, grapefruit and tangerines in 1992-93.
 Our hearts go out to those who have been devastated by this tragedy.
