Areas of North Dallas experienced extensive destruction after a late-night tornado ripped through the Texas city on Sunday. The twister’s 70 miles per hour winds carved a 17-mile path of destruction, causing damage to countless home and buildings, and leaving tens of thousands of residents without power.

As residents grapple with catastrophic property loss, the six U-Haul Companies across northern Texas are providing a helping hand by offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to those impacted by the severe weather.

"The storm hit quickly and has left many residents scrambling to find a place to store their belongings," Zane Rowland, U-Haul Company of North East Dallas president, said in a news release. "U-Haul is stepping up to offer our neighbors a place to securely store their things during the clean-up process at no charge for one month."

U-Haul Companies of East Dallas, Fort Worth, North East Dallas, Northwest Dallas, North Dallas, and South-Central Dallas have made 52 facilities available to offer the 30 days free disaster relief assistance program. Full list of participating locations available here.
