WYOMISSING, Pa. -

Two insurance companies have set up mobile operations centers in Wyomissing following that bizarre hailstorm that slammed Berks County last month.

Allstate Insurance and Progressive Insurance are assisting customers in The Home Depot parking lot on Crossing Drive. Customers can drop off hail-damaged cars.

One woman at the site said she bought her car two weeks before that wild storm on May 22.

"We usually don't park right in front of our business, but that day I was parked in front, and that day I just watched it the whole entire time get demolished by hail," said Rebecca Elia.

Tens of thousands of cars have been damaged. Rental car companies don't have enough cars to keep up with demand.
