Flood-Damaged Cars Expected to Flood The Market

Story by WBGZ Radio

There may be an influx of flood-damaged cars on the market in the weeks to come, so Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White is warning consumers of the possibility. This was a big problem after Hurricane Katrina and other storms, and is starting to become an issue once again, according to White.

He says you need to watch out for cars coming from flooded areas.

Signs of flood damage to a car include a musty odor in the interior, rust around the doors and under the hood, upholstery or carpeting that doesn't match, and mud or silt in the glove compartment.
