2019 is now officially the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history with catastrophic flooding the whole year bringing NOAA to declare "2019 was the 2nd wettest year on record for the U.S."
The US is experienced unprecedented and catastrophic flooding, the rains started in the winter and went right through the summer into autumn. More than 90% of the upper midwest and great planes were still covered by nearly 11 inches of snow well into May. That meant the US transformed from one of the worst winters in modern history into a flood season that took an apocalyptic turn for farmers across the US. Millions of acres of farmland stayed drenched and unfit for planting meaning thousands of farmers did not plant crops this summer, with thousands of more financially ruined by the floods and will never return to farming again.
2019 was the 2nd wettest year on record for the U.S. The nation also experienced 14 billion-dollar weather and climate disasters last year.
