Storm damages California strawberries

California strawberry farmers have suffered up to $200 million in damage from wind, rain and floods. These devastated some 1,840 acres from Southern California to the Central Coast, an industry group reports. Soil erosion occurred on an estimated 350 acres; another 1,490 acres are awaiting flood waters to recede, the California Strawberry Commission reports. The Commission says its loss estimates are preliminary, and urges growers to report damage to their county.

Much of California is drying out this week after three weeks of intense storms that caused debris flows and extensive flooding, but further boosted reservoir levels and high-resolution snowpack, the USDA reports. Storms have also been battering the Pacific Northwest, Intermountain West and Great Plains, the agency notes in its Weekly Weather and Crop Bulletin.
