|😯 I'm sorry to hear that...
Sounds like it could have been bit with frost? Along with the below 20F?
Can you post a picture of it?

|The above-ground portion of the tree will suffer more from the cold than the roots that are partially insulated by the soil and pot. You may lose most of the upper portion, but the tree might still survive if the roots are okay. There is no way to tell other than to watch and wait.
One problem is that whatever fronds are damaged will never get replaced. New growth only comes in at the tip end of each main stem, never below. If the growing tip is damaged, then the plant is likely to die.
