U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Storage to Mooresville Tornado Victims

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents impacted by the EF1 tornado and severe storms that slammed Mooresville and surrounding areas on Wednesday night.

Winds reached 100 mph and many structures sustained damage when the weather moved through central Indiana.

“This is devastating for this community,” said Patrick Cheek, U-Haul Company of Central Indiana president. “Homes and businesses have been damaged. Many of these folks are already facing the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak, and now they have another hurdle to jump.

“As people begin to pick up the pieces, we want to offer a secure place for them to store their belongings at no cost for one month.”
