I think almost everyone in Florida is dealing with frost damaged plants this year. The best thing to do is to wait a few weeks just to be sure the winter weather is gone, then prune back all the damaged plants. Most will have suffered only cosmetic damage and will be able to replace dead fronds and branches later in the spring. Continue to give your palm good care and it should recover. Best wishes with your landscape!
