Greensboro tornado: U-Haul offers 30 days free self-storage to victims
GREENSBORO, N.C. — U-Haul Company of Central North Carolina is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents who have been impacted by the high winds and severe storms associated with a tornado that touched down Sunday in Guilford County.
Winds blew down trees, grounded flights and knocked out power for thousands of residents.
“Many of our neighbors are having to deal with damaged homes and businesses,” U-Haul Company of Central North Carolina president Jason Grider said. “As a caring member of this community, we want to make sure these families have a safe and secure place to store their possessions.”
