Flood waters claimed the life of an eastern Iowa man.

The body of 71-year-old Howard Hodson of Ackley was recovered Wednesday. Witnesses say Hodson tried to drive across a flooded road near Parkersburg on Monday when his vehicle was swept away into a creek bed.

Rescue crews tried to reach him, but the water was too strong.

His body was found downstream from the incident.
