South Alabama farmers reported receiving some damage from Hurricane Isaac, but say it was not as bad as it could have been.

The worst damage appeared to be to pecan crops, always sensitive to high winds and rain.

Jeremy Sessions said an early inspection of his Grand Bay farm revealed damage to pecan trees. He said some limbs filled with pecans were blown over. He expects many of the pecans remaining on trees were ruined.
