New Yorkers affected by flooding from the record levels on Lake Ontario and Lake Erie are being offered free storage.

U-Haul Companies of Western New York and North Central New York areoffering 30 days of free self-storage to anyone impacted by flooding.

Lake Ontario is 24 inches higher than it was at this time last year and a flood warning remains in place. The other Great Lakes are 1-6 inches higher than ever recorded for the month of May. With more rain in the forecast, many roads have closed and homes are in danger of taking on water.

“The rains have really been pounding this area lately,” said Todd Schnitzer, U-Haul Company of Western New York president. “Many folks have suffered water damage, and with more rain to come, people are in need of a secure place to store their possessions. We want to make sure our neighbors in impacted areas are able to make use of our disaster relief assistance program.”
