SPRINGDALE, Ark., May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul Company of Tulsa is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents of Northwest Arkansas who have been or will be impacted by flood conditions in the area.
Major weekend storms brought floodwater to the region. There has been extensive water damage to homes and the flooding has caused several fatalities.
"There are several towns that are still under evacuation," U-Haul Company of Tulsa president Jim Smith said. "The White River continues to rise and people are speculating that we will break the previous flooding record.
"U-Haul is a strong supporter of our communities and we want to help those who are struggling. Having a safe, secure and dry place to store possessions is important in times like these," Smith continued.
Families seeking more information about the 30 days free self-storage assistance or needing to make self-storage arrangements should contact one of the following stores:
