I have been growing tomatoes for nearly 40 years and have had my share of the different diseases toms can get. My advice is spray fungicide as label directions. This will not cure it but will slow its progression. The worse part of this disease is it will spread very easily. Refrain from cutting the leaves off because when you touch or cut the leaves off and make contact with another leaf it will now be infected. You will just speed the spread. Avoid any overhead watering. You can't stop the rain I know but just don't allow the plant to get wet other than from Mother Nature. You should still get some tomatoes I hope. Feed your tomatoes as you normally would as well as water and I I wish you well. The biggest preventive I have found for this disease is when you transplant your tomatoes, make sure no garden soil ever touches your plant foliage and mulch with straw or garden fabric immediately after planting. This will prevent any soil splash onto your plants. Good luck and I hope this helps. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
