U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to flood victims in and around Jackson as the Pearl River continues to overflow.

Many roads in Jackson have taken on water and the city is under a state of emergency. Residents living near the reservoir have been asked to evacuate.

"The Pearl River is expected to crest several feet above the flood stage, and many residents will continue be affected," said Dick Porter, U-Haul Company of Mississippi president. "This type of disaster creates an immediate need for dry, secure facilities where our neighbors can store their belongings. U-Haul is here to help by making select stores available at no cost for one month."
