A consumer alert from the insurance industry and Lubbock County leaders. The insurance industry estimates Hurricane Ike flooded around 100,000 cars, and there's no guarantee that damage will be reported.
Record rains here on the South Plains also put a few cars under water, so they're warning potential car buyers to check vehicles thoroughly before purchase. "If you're looking at a vehicle, if you could see the title, if it says anything about damage, if it's in the name of an insurance company, that's a warning," Lubbock County Tax Assessor Barbara Brooks said.
