Across tobacco country, crops wilt from rain

In this photo taken Friday, July 12, 2013 Harnett County farmer Kent Revels holds a damaged tobacco leaf caused by excess rain in his tobacco fields in Fuquay Varina, N.C. Heavy rain across the nation's tobacco-growing territories has soaked the dry weather-loving plants to the point that many can't be saved. Revels estimates up to a third of his yield has already been damaged. (AP Photo/Gerry Broome)
