Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White has issued a warning to consumers looking to purchase used vehicles to beware of flood damaged cars resulting from flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey in the Houston area.

The Secretary of State’s office will screen title applications from the affected areas impacted by the flooding to determine if the vehicles are registered in a flood county. White stated that “We are taking every step possible to ensure that flood damaged vehicles from Hurricane Harvey do not receive clean titles in Illinois”.

It has been reported that as many as 500-thousand vehicles may be affected by Hurricane Harvey.  In comparison, some 350-thousand vehicles were affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

White also announced that Carfax is providing a link to check for flood vehicles.  To visit the free link, go to www.carfax.com/flood.
