Hurricane Idalia is projected to intensify into a category three hurricane and poses a danger to the Southeastern United States, especially Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas over the upcoming week. Current projections predict landfall on the west side of Florida by late morning Wednesday, August 30, then continuing northeast towards Georgia and the Atlantic coastline.

  • Southeast coastal bean, eggplant, and tomato growers are expected to harvest as much as possible during the first part of this week in preparation for inclement weather
  • Potentially heavy rainfall may delay the start of some fall harvests, damaging crops already planted (and currently seedlings) such as bell pepper, cabbage, cucumbers, squash, and tomatoes
  • Expect road closures and freight delays later this week

Markon will continue to monitor Hurricane Idalia’s path and update as more information becomes available.
