PONCHATOULA, La. (AP) - Strawberry farmers are bracing for Wednesday night’s cold snap.
WBRZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/142R2rs ) crews worked to cover their strawberries and protect them from the cold weather moving in.
Farmers say if temperatures get too cold and stay there for too long, they could be facing a total loss of their crops.
Lows are forecast to be around 20 degrees in southern Louisiana and stay in the 20s for the next two or three days, with the potential for freezing rain later in the week.
