Vegetable Plants Wilting, Too Much Water?

Can heavy rain over an entire week cause overnight wilting in vegetable plants (ie. tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers) due to soil saturation?

If they all wilted at the same time I would say definitely, have the leaves curled down (too much water) or curled up (not enough water) have the leaves turned yellow? You might want to pull 1 and see if the roots are rotten, what about raised beds in the future. You may want to try digging a hole a few inches away from the plant and see if that fills up with water if so you are definitely saturated. . Or you may have root knot nematodes. If you like you can send your rain my way, we are starting water rationing at this time I could only save 150 gal. of rain water this year and I have used most of it already.
