Heavy rainfall from Hurricane Lee has flooded parts of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, with one city declaring a state of emergency as water poured into homes, creating moats around foundations and leading to boat rescues of residents. Concern about a dam listed in poor condition led to more evacuations.
U-Haul® is now offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage at 14 of its locations within Massachusetts and Rhode Island sites where residents may need recovery assistance from flooding
“We’ve been dealing with heavy rains all month,” stated Sandie Gardner, U-Haul Company of Rhode Island president. “With more rain in the forecast, along with other weather related to Hurricane Lee, people may need a secure place to store their belongings. This is where U-Haul and our disaster relief program comes into play. We can help our neighbors.”
The U-Haul disaster relief program applies to new self-storage unit and U-Box container rentals and is based on availability.
