DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller says residents of counties hit by recent flooding should beware of scams.

Miller says in a press release that contractors known as "storm chasers" may try to convince people to hire them for clean-up work. He says people should be wary of contractors who show up at the door and should seek out established businesses instead.

Miller also advises people to get written estimates for any work, to seek references and to avoid paying up front.

Heavy rain and thunderstorms in eastern Iowa have caused limited flooding and property damage.
