Answer: It's not unusual for corn stalks to 'lodge', or fall over during a wind or rain storm, especially if they've tassled out. Tassles make the stalks quite top heavy. If you plant your corn too deeply, the seed will run out of energy before it emerges from the ground. Plant corn only one-inch deep. You might try growing your corn in blocks rather than in rows, to give the plants protection from the wind, and to allow them to lend support to each other.
