The moving and storage giant U-Haul has decided that it will be offering nearly 30 dAys of free storage at the facilities of the company that are across the Carolinas as well as Virginia, as the Florence hurricane has begun to bear down on the East Coast of the United States. The storm is growing and is expected to make quite a huge landfall on Saturday and is on the way to become a Category 5 storm soon as the winds are flowing at a rate of nearly 175 miles per hour, which is potentially hazardous.
This incoming storm is causing a lot of trouble for the people and has prompted mass evacuations which are primarily along the Northern and Southern coastlines of Carolina and the Governor of South Carolina named Henry McMaster said in a statement given by him on Tuesday that his state is actually very deadly and also is in an important game of chess, as far as the hurricane is concerned. These evacuations have encouraged the company U-Haul to keep nearly 90 of the storage facilities open and the people that are leaving the path of the storm can use these absolutely for free, as per the president of the company Elijah Mack.
The company has been inspecting the facilities since the past few months in order to make sure that everything at the facilities is secure, clean, and dry. According to the president, the option to store the belongings no matter which way the people chose to fight this storm, is of the potential to make their decisions much easier to make. He also added that being a very strong member of the community, they are in the position to offer this kind of service which can help a lot of people who are in need.
