NEW ORLEANS, La. (Aug. 22, 2020) — U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents who stand to be impacted by Tropical Storms Marco and Laura.
The two-storm system is expected to make landfall early next week.
“Heavy rain is the primary threat to the New Orleans area right now,” said Patrick Allen, U-Haul Company of Southern Louisiana president. “We have a history of flooding, so we want residents to be able to preemptively store their at-risk belongings.”
Twelve area facilities have been made available to assist those in need. People seeking more information about the U-Haul disaster relief program or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact the nearest participating location:
