"These severe storms slammed Southern Indiana overnight and into Wednesday morning," U-Haul Company of Louisville president Chris Nester said. "There were more than 1,500 people without power.
"U-Haul needs to step up in times like these to show we are a strong supporter of our communities. We are proud to offer safe and secure storage to families in need."
