HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- A hailstorm that pummeled Hutchinson in July has meant a lot of new roofs in the city.

The city says it's issued $4.4 million in new roofing permits since the July 23 hailstorm. The total was helped last week by two big projects -- re-roofing the Hutchinson Mall and the Dillon Living Center.

A total of 202 roofing permits worth $2.4 million were issued just last week. The city has issued 476 permits since 2.5- to 4-inch hail pounded the eastern half of the city, leaving baseball-sized holes in some structures.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/1cn8LJH ) the city issued an average of 6.5 roofing permits in the four weeks before the storm.

The newspaper reports 342, or 72 percent, of the permits were issued for a 1.5-mile-wide in eastern Hutchinson.
