StorQuest Self Storage is offering two months of free storage to victims of mud slides in the Los Angeles County communities of La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta and Tujunga Canyon. As mud levels rise in the area and local residents are forced to evacuate, StorQuest is offering them a safe place to store their belongings.
More than 500 homes have been evacuated as mud and debris flow down the mountain, overflowing basins and flooding the local region. The La Canada Flintridge area witnessed the devastation of 43 homes by the occurrence of mudslides during the past week.
"Rocks and boulders have covered the streets. Mud has been flooding into homes and burying individuals’ belongings. Nobody in the community was really prepared for this sort of destruction," said Brianne Llewellyn, a Sunland, Calif., resident.
The area is expecting heavy rain again this evening, with rivers of mud coming off the mountain.
StorQuest is the operating brand name of self-storage facilities developed and operated by The William Warren Group Inc. The company maintains 10 facilities throughout Los Angeles County and 47 nationwide.
