SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – Meg Baker, a customer at Public Storage, which was flooded during Hurricane Ida, like many others are fighting to save what’s left of their belongings. The company notified its customers, according to CBS News that it would be throwing away items in storage units on the lower level.

 “We had originally hoped to provide customers access to salvageable items, but unfortunately, our vendor has determined that any items stored in units on the lower level are unsalvageable, hazardous, and must be declared a total loss,” the company said in a letter to customers.

She and others are hoping the judge will grant an injunction before it’s too late as remediation crews have already begun clearing out the units that have sat for weeks after the floods.

“We’re hoping that by him granting our injunction, that others too will be granted the same,” Murphy said in the interview.
