issue Variation or reaction?

I have a red Scotch bonnet plant that is very healthy. Great canopy filled with fruit all season long. Nice bright red shiny pods. However since hurricane Ida came through. Every pod ripens to a dark orange. Now I don't necessarily think the storm had anything to do with it. I'm actually thinking possibly light change? I've never had a pepper lose its color at the end of the season like this.

you have a lot of factors like the temperature is drooping it's hard for the plants to get the fruits at the final color, and if it's with more water and the plant already getting a little weaker because of the net for nutrients you can have some wait till red OR simple the plant is not stable it happens, to from now have dark orange scoth bonets... MAGIC :lol:
Just a guess
