WAUWATOSA, Wis., Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Two local U-Haul Companies are making 14 store locations available to offer 30 days of free self-storage to residents affected by the severe flooding in Greater Milwaukee and other regional areas.

U-Haul is offering 30 days of free self-storage at 14 facilities in Greater Milwaukee and other areas in the region for residents who have been impacted by the flooding in Wisconsin. Pictured: Indoor drive-in storage at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Currie Park in Wauwatosa.

Heavy rains are flooding many homes and businesses, causing rivers to overflow, forcing closures along Interstate 43, and placing families in need of assistance. Cities to the north like Saukville have seen substantial damage. Free self-storage is available as far north as Oshkosh.

"As a part of these communities, we want to lend a hand to our neighbors who could use a dry, secure place to bring their belongings," said Erica Eberhardy, U-Haul Company of Northern Milwaukee and Suburbs president.

"The northeast corner (of Greater Milwaukee) has been hit by torrential rainfall," added Alex Sonnleitner, U-Haul Company of South Eastern Wisconsin president. "Providing a month of self-storage at no cost is one way we can help."
