Tropical Storm Bertha made landfall on Wednesday morning in South Carolina. The storm has the potential to cause flooding and damage in various regions. 

"The path of these storms can change in an instant, so we're encouraging residents to take precautions to protect their homes and belongings," said Deborah Carter, U-Haul Company of Coastal South Carolina president.

"Tropical storms create an immediate need for dry and secure locations where residents can store their personal possessions. As a member of these communities, U-Haul is in a position to help by providing assistance to any of our neighbors in harm's way."
