CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (Sept. 27, 2019) — U-Haul Company of Northern Wisconsin and the UP is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents in western Wisconsin who were impacted by Tuesday night’s tornado.
The twister was ranked an EF-3 and downed power lines, overturned vehicles and caused structural collapses.
“The storm hit quickly and has left many residents scrambling to repair their damaged homes,” noted Justin Kaminski, U-Haul Company of Northern Wisconsin and the UP president. “U-Haul is stepping up to offer our neighbors a place to securely store their belongings during the clean-up process at no charge for one month.”
