Episode Narrative Heavy rainfall during the month of June caused considerable crop losses across the state. Crop damage was done through a combination of inundation flooding and losses due to crops not being able to be planted or rotting in the ground. It is not possible to get a clear breakdown of the percent of damage that can be attributed to each cause. The damage here is not related to the river flooding. Those flooding events are addressed in other flooding entries. Many of the southern Iowa counties were unable to plant crops at all through June, while areas of the central and north lost the crops that were planted through drowning or washouts. Estimates from the state and county extension offices indicated that about 10% of the crop was lost across the state. The amount of loss in the DMX CWA was around $1 billion to the corn and soybean crop. By the end of the month, Iowa Governor Culver declared 32 counties state disaster areas. They were Black Hawk, Buena Vista, Butler, Cherokee, Clay, Davis, Decatur, Emmet, Franklin, Hamilton, Hancock, Howard, Humboldt, Jasper, Jefferson, Kossuth, Lee, Lyon, Mahaska, Madison, Marion, Monroe, O'Brien, Osceola, Palo Alto, Polk, Ringgold, Sioux, Shelby, Taylor, Union, Van Buren, Wapello, Warren, Webster, Wright. An application for about 35 counties was made for a Presidential Disaster Declaration.
