DALLAS, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® is offering its 30 days of free self-storage disaster relief program to residents affected by the severe storms and tornado that slammed the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex on Tuesday night.
Buildings in Arlington collapsed and at least three apartment complexes were destroyed. The storms moved through north Texas at high speeds wreaking havoc.

"As people begin the clean-up process, we want to offer them a secure place to store their belongings at no cost for one month. It's the least we can do to help our neighbors leading up to Thanksgiving."
