ST. LOUIS, March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul Company of St. Louis is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents who have been or will be impacted by heavy rains and flooding along rivers in Greater St. Louis.
Steady rains over the last several days have flooded streets and caused many homes to incur water damage.
"Close to an inch of rain fell on Saturday and the torrential downpour is continuing," U-Haul Moving & Storage of Dutchtown general manager Landon Barks said. "The rivers are threatening to overflow and some of the city storm drains are backing up and flooding roads. We have neighbors in low-lying regions that are getting hit hard."
"We are trying to help as many families in need as possible," U-Haul Company of St. Louis president Steve Langford said. "In trying times, we want to offer a helping hand and provide our communities with a dry and secure place to store their possessions."
