HYANNIS, Mass., July 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul Company of Southern Massachusetts & Cape Cod is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents on Cape Cod who were impacted by Tuesday's tornado.

The twister touched down in South Yarmouth, West Yarmouth and Harwich. Tens of thousands of people lost power and many homes have sustained damage.

"The storm came in very quickly and caught many residents off guard," said Stoyan Kovachev, U-Haul Company of Southern Massachusetts & Cape Cod president. "U-Haul is stepping up to offer our neighbors a place to securely store their belongings during the clean-up process. We're proud to be part of this community."
