City officials in Wylie are starting to see just how badly last week’s hailstorm ravaged the area. Initial estimates say 80 percent of homes and businesses were damaged to some degree. “That could be anything from a cracked window to a total loss,” says Wylie’s mayor Eric Hogue. Estimates on the cost of the damage are not available yet. The city has about 15,000 homes, which means roughly 12,000 are covered in blue tarps and have wood where glass used to be. However, for those homes that need major repairs, the city is giving homeowners a bit of a break.
