White Oak Storage Severely Damaged by NC Tornado


White Oak Storage in Jacksonville, N.C., spent much of last week cleaning up after dozens of tornadoes ripped through the state and caused damage.

The April 16 tornado ripped off the roof and destroyed the buildings at the self-storage facility, owned by Crawford Collins.

White Oak Self Storage, located on Piney Green Road, has 48 units. Several people from the community volunteered to help Collins clean up the business. The business remained closed during the cleanup.

North Carolina experienced at least 28 tornadoes April 16, according to news reports. At least 21 people died and more than 100 were injured, along with damage to hundreds of homes and businesses.
