But over the next few days, they will be working hard to make sure visitors can hardly tell anything was damaged.SOT Holly Keris - Chief Curator at Cummer Museum 26:26 There probably are some things that won't make it back, but they may have been on their way out to begin with.

I'm told by people at Trad's Garden Center that you don't want to dig them up yet. You want to give them a few weeks to try to recover. At that time, you will know for sure if they made it.
