17; Chesnee, April 3, 1992, and Caesars Head, April 8, 2007
In April 1992, the average low temperatures in South Carolina were 1.2 degrees below normal. In April 2007, there was an event, now known as the Easter Freeze, on the morning of the 8th. This brought below freezing temperatures for eight hours on Easter morning. The South Carolinian apples and winter wheat were so badly damaged that the USDA declared 41 counties in the state as primary natural disaster areas.
