The cornfield where the helicopter took footage had holes in the corn leaves,
which a farmer remarked were worm holes.
The other cornfield (originally reported as being "scorched", but later changed
to being as one leaf being "scorched") was described as having
"BB-like holes", which may also be worm damage.
