NORTHAMPTON, Mass., Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul Company of Western Massachusetts & Vermont is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents who were affected by the tornado that touched down on Saturday night.

The EF-1 tornado knocked out power and left many homes damaged. Winds reached up to 110 mph.

"Most of the damage took place in Conway," U-Haul Company of Western Massachusetts & Vermont president Jim Blair said. "As a strong member of these communities, U-Haul is happy to provide a safe and secure place to store belongings."

People seeking more information about the 30 days free self-storage assistance or needing to make storage arrangements should contact:

U-Haul of Northampton

227 N. King St.

With U-Box containers, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box with you. U-Haul also can store your U-Box container in our secure warehouses or pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.

U-Haul stores offer needed supplies to help with storm recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. U-Haul urges customers to ensure their tanks are topped off since propane is good to have in the event of long-term power outages.
