CLIVE, Iowa (AP) - A Clive auto repair business reports that 90 percent of the vehicles on its property have been ruined by a flash flood.

Des Moines television station KCCI reports (https://bit.ly/1BKdC8B ) that Acheson Auto Works, which backs up to the Walnut Creek, was flooded early Friday, destroying about 40 vehicles.

Tim Todd with Acheson Auto Works says he was shocked by how fast the water rose and said that by the time he got a call warning of the flooding, “it was too late.”

Workers plan to continue the cleanup throughout the weekend in hopes of opening on Monday.
