What caused this?

The inside of this electric panel is full of rust and corrosion. Click on the picture to see what could cause this.
Water leaked into the top of the meter box and traveled through the wire into the panel. This can corrode and rust the circuit breakers and prevent them from tripping which could cause an electrical fire.
Periodic removal of the panel cover and inspection can┬ádiscover this condition. $2.50 worth of sealant can prevent it. $1ooo – $1500 to replace panel.
