5 U-Haul Stores Offer Flood Relief in Texas, Louisiana

May 18, 2021

U-Haul® is making five facilities in southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana available to provide 30 days of free self-storage to residents impacted by the storms and severe flooding that have slammed the region over the last few days.

Creek and river flooding have left parts of Jasper and Beaumont underwater in Texas, with about a foot of rain forcing road and school closures. Hundreds of people have needed rescuing in the Louisiana cities of Baton Rouge and Lake Charles, which has endured its third weather-related disaster in less than a year.

“Heavy rains have led to severe flooding in these communities, and countless families have seen their houses take on water and their possessions lost or damaged,” stated Jerry Bowden, U-Haul Company of South Central Louisiana president.

“There will be a clean-up and recovery process in the coming days and weeks. We want our neighbors to know that help is available. Anyone impacted by these storms can make use of a storage room at no cost for one month while there is availability.”

People seeking more information about the U-Haul disaster relief program or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact the participating store nearest them:
