HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- The hailstorm that pounded south-central Kansas earlier this week has left automotive dealers with big headaches, but it's also giving prospective buyers a chance at big bargains.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/14b40Ml ) dealerships in the city were scrambling to get insurance appraisals after the fast-moving storm hit the area Tuesday night.

Large hailstones dinged hundreds of vehicles parked in dealers' lots.

The general manager of Midwest Superstore says all 400 cars on the lot were damaged, and signs announcing discounts of up to $6,000 went up immediately. But Nick Hill also says that some vehicles will be taken away for salvage if they're deemed a total loss.

At Hutchinson's Midway Motors, two pickups worth a combined $100,000 were destroyed when a 100-foot flagpole was toppled by winds gusting over 80 mph. utchnews.com
