JONESBORO, Ark., March 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents impacted by the large tornado and severe storms that slammed Jonesboro and surrounding areas in Arkansas on Saturday afternoon.

"As people begin to pick up the pieces, they may need a secure place to stow their belongings," said Andrew Hicks, U-Haul Company of Arkansas president. "The tornado flattened many buildings, so our neighbors are facing a long road of clean-up and recovery. We want to help by making self-storage at our Jonesboro facility available at no cost for one month."
