I live in GA. Got over 9 in. of rain in a few days, and we are getting rain every day. All the leaves turned yellow and look like they were burnt off. Is this a fungus or something?

The yellowing leaves is the indication of to much water.
Hopefully the soil can drain away the excess moisture.
Pull back any mulch to help the moisture evaporate.

When everything is saturated it can cause fungus, invite insects and lead to root rot.

If you see signs of insects or fungus treat with Neem Oil, this works as both an insecticide and fungicide and is safe for people and pets.

You are in a wait and see time for the garden.
