At this point, Orca cannot handle times and dates where the time and
date information is listed in separate columns, as in the example you
give below.  The solution to this is to preprocess the data file
to convert the time into the epoch time.

Use the Date::Parse module to do this that is in TimeData available
on CPAN:

    use Date::Parse;
    $timestamp = str2time($date);
