There is very little action to take at this time. Storm damage is common to palms. It is unnecessary to remove damages stems, although it is up to you if you want to or not.

Thank you answering my question but I think I asked the question the wrong way. I meant to ask about the new growth coming from the top of my palms. If they are broken should I just leave them cut some back or cut them all the way out. Also is this going to kill the palm trees.
