Updated: Wednesday, May 29 2013, 02:23 PM CDT
PARKERSBURG, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities have recovered the body of a man whose vehicle was swept off the road by flood water in northeast Iowa.
   The body of 71-year-old Howard Hodson, of Ackley, was taken Wednesday to the state medical examiner's office in Ankeny.
   Witnesses told Butler County Sheriff's deputies that Hodson drove his sport utility vehicle into rapidly moving water Monday morning. The car was washed into a creek west of Parkersburg.
   Officials say deep swiftly moving water made it too dangerous for divers to reach the SUV immediately after the accident.
