U-Haul Assists Tornado and Flood Victims in Southern Louisiana

Posted by Modern Storage Media on Apr 11, 2024 10:45:00 AM

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents impacted by the tornadoes and flooding affecting much of southern Louisiana, including the New Orleans metro area.


Severe weather has brought fierce winds and heavy rains to the region. A tornado caused widespread damage in Slidell and eastern St. Tammany Parish. New Orleans declared a flash flood warning.


With some families displaced and others facing home repairs, access to dry and secure self-storage rooms during the clean-up process is essential for communities affected by natural disasters.


"The damage from these tornadoes and storms is significant," stated Patrick Allen, U-Haul Company of Southern Louisiana president. "As our neighbors face cleaning up or repairing their homes, we are extending one month of free storage to anyone who needs it. It's the least we can do to help during a difficult time."


Ten stores are available to provide 30 days of free storage services. The U-Haul disaster relief program applies to new storage rentals and is based on availability.


People seeking more information or needing to arrange free self-storage should contact their nearest participating facility (alphabetized by city):
