U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents impacted by the large tornado and severe storms that slammed Jonesboro and surrounding areas in Arkansas on Saturday afternoon.
Many homes and businesses sustained damage when extreme weather moved through the state. A number of injuries have been reported.
“As people begin to pick up the pieces, they may need a secure place to stow their belongings,” said Andrew Hicks, U-Haul Company of Arkansas president. “The tornado flattened many buildings, so our neighbors are facing a long road of clean-up and recovery. We want to help by making self-storage at our Jonesboro facility available at no cost for one month.”

U-Haul stores offer needed supplies to help with storm recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. Customers are urged to ensure their tanks are topped off since propane is good to have in the event of long-term power outages.
