If you're one of the thousands of Abilene car owners that is dealing with major hail damage, you're probably well aware that rental cars have been hard to come by.

We reached out to the corporate offices of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, who also operates the National and Alamo car rental brands. A spokeswoman says Enterprise has already sent several hundred cars to the Abilene area, and expects to have a total of about 1,000 extra cars in town by the end of this week.

We've also contacted Budget Car Rental (which also owns Avis), but are still waiting to hear back from them. We'll let you know when we do.
