Default Black Streaks on Leaves?

Hi everyone,
I've noticed black streaks on the oldest leaves on one of my plants. It's been super rainy and humid lately, which has seemed to make them worse. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks!

Ive been getting that too on my plants, also only on the lower/ oldest leaves. Im not sure what it is but I have heard that it might be sign the banana plant is deficient from a certain micro-nutrient and the plant is trying to accumulate what little of it is left so it takes away any of it left in the oldest leaves to supplement it, causing the black marks. I think that some of the other members may know exactly what it is and how to treat it.
