The article discusses the Hurricane Ivan crop damage. Hurricane Ivan, following closely on the heels of Hurricane Frances, slammed into the Alabama coastline during the third week of September and continued northward, causing major damage from the beaches of northwest Florida and Alabama to the mountains of North Carolina. Together, the back-to-back hurricanes destroyed millions of dollars worth of cotton, peanuts and pecans in Alabama, Georgia, eastern Mississippi and the Florida Panhandle. The northward paths of both storms also wreaked havoc on the Carolinas, with Hurricane Frances alone accounting for $55 million in damages in North Carolina.
