Flooded Texas Dealerships Say The Situation is Catastrophic

The Hurricane in Texas invaded lots of dealerships, leaving them with flooded inventories. One owner of the car dealerships affected said that overall it’s catastrophic, major damage. People in their area are still trapped in attics. The dealership itself is trapped. It has anything from a foot to two feet of water in them. It may be too early to start recovery operations.



"We are struggling with the evacuation right now," Wyatt Wainwright, president of the Houston Automobile Dealers Association, said in a statement posted on the National Automobile Dealers Association website. "There are large scale mandatory and voluntary evacuations going on right now. We don't know where we can go to escape. I don't know how I could drive three miles right now without getting blocked." His association represents 175 dealerships in metro Houston. "There's still 20 to 30 inches of rain that still has to pass through. We are not even near to the peak flooding yet," Wainwright said. "A big issue we haven't faced yet are rivers and streams that have yet to overflow. There is so much more of this to go which is the problem."



The National Automobile Dealers Association Foundation said it has mobilized its Emergency Relief Fund to assist dealership employees impacted by personal property damage caused by the storm and flooding. The NADA Foundation called on dealers and dealer association groups to donate online to its Emergency Relief FundNADA spokesman Jonathan Collegio said the association is still assessing the breadth of the damage, but estimates somewhere between 30,000 and 35,000 dealership employees in the Houston area could have been affected.



“It’s unclear yet how many of them have been impacted. Some dealerships are completely underwater, while some are dry, but even with the dry ones we’re not sure how many of the dealership personnel have been affected. Some of the reports are saying that 300,000 to 500,000 homes have been flooded. So we have to assume that a large number of dealership families have been impacted,” he said.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
