ForWarn detected a disturbance in southern Florida in May 2014. Laurel Wilt fungal disease is terminal in plants of the Laurel family. Drought induced dieback of vegetation as well as insect defoliation may also play a part in greenness departure. This event was revisited in July 2014 with newer imagery but the cause is still undetermined.

ForWarn identified anomalies in the Lyon and Johnson Mountains, New York. There are several possible causes for this event. Clouds may obstruct the detector providing a false anomaly, insects may be defoliating the area, the phenology of the plants could play a part in departure, or sever weather causing damage to foliage.
