Flooded corn field (Zea mays) in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, USA. Flooding can seriously damage crops. Waterlogged fields not only increases susceptibility of the crops to disease, but flooding also transports seeds of invasive weeds to the area. In June 2008, much of the American Midwest had heavy rainfall and severe flooding, which caused 24 deaths and over 35,000 people to be evacuated from their homes.
