CALLS 'FLOOD IN' TO AUTO CLUB FOR TRAVEL UPDATES

 DEARBORN, Mich., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Automobile Club of Michigan members with travel plans west of the Mississippi have helped call volumes surge an average 13 percent over July 1992.
 "In July of this year, several thousand members called our Dearborn Headquarters with concerns about highway and bridge closings in Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and other states affected by flooding," said AAA Michigan Touring Manager Robert Tellier. "And that doesn't include the hundreds of inquiries made at our 35 statewide branch offices."
 The Auto Club has set up a special recorded message that is updated frequently to inform members of changing conditions. Members hear the latest road and highway conditions and a touring counselor assists if new arrangements or revised Triptiks are needed.
 The Auto Club states that the public can obtain current flood information by calling these states, most with toll-free numbers: Missouri, 800-755-1200; Illinois, 800-452-4368; Minnesota, 800-542-0220; North Dakota, 800-472-2686, and Iowa, 515-288-1047.
 AAA Michigan is the nation's third-largest auto club affiliated with the American Automobile Association (AAA). The Auto Club is a non-profit corporation which provides safety, travel, recreational, insurance and financial services to its 1.5 million members statewide.
