At this point in time, I don't recall how it correlated with bloom on 
the pawpaws, but we had an F3 tornado pass within 3/4 of a mile of 
the house on 2 April, and a widespread five-minute hailstorm on 7 
April, that beat virtually every blossom or young fruit off almost 
every tree in the orchard here, knocking off big chunks of bark and 
causing bark splits as bad or worse than any cicada damage I've ever 
seen.  I suppose those events could also have had some effect on the 
pawpaw crop in this area.
