ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Toyota has halted work at its plants through Wednesday. Representatives from Anderson Toyota say they are still waiting for more information, but doesn't anticipate a big interruption in shipment.

The majority of the dealers vehicles come from U.S. plants. Only about 20 percent of Anderson's cars, primarily hybrids and the Prius, come from Japan.

Sales Manager Troy Hancock says the biggest impact of the shutdown will be seen in parts.

"A lot of our parts do come from Japan especially those sold our parts department and those might have a little bit of a slowdown, but it should be back to normal here soon, very very soon."
