What sort of storage was this? I presume it was storage provided by your landlord outside the apartment? What does your lease say, if anything, about this "storage"?

(there are a lot of " storage" places I'd never put a computer or any other electronics in)

^ This. Your lease probably mentions that you should get renter's insurance and that since it was an "act of God" (rain) and not a water pipe bursting, then unfortunately the apartment complex may not be responsible for you damages. As others have mentioned....read your lease.

1. What does your lease/storage agreement say?
2. Any "legal" advise you get on the internet may suck.

I don't think there is a "storage company" involved, I think there was some sort of storage at the OP's apartment complex.

Are you sure it was rain and not a burst pipe, landscaping or even a fire hydrant?

Several years ago I had a car that was damaged by a burst water main pipe. I was parked in an apartment complex's parking lot. I filed a claim and was reimbursed by their insurance company.

No i dont have renters insurance.

Actually i dont have a lease here anymore. I never expected it to rain in Arizona. My lease says nothing about water damage. matter of fact i no longer have a lease iit was up a while back. i guess im month to month.

Last month. it poured. they fixed the leaked (so they say ) all my summer stuff got destroyed. But its not like i go into my storage area every day, who ever expected it to rain in there. Guess i was the lucky one to get my stuff wet.

It does rain in Arizona. And, just like roofs on houses, that's when it's discovered that there is a problem. I think you are out of luck, as the landlord wouldn't be on notice that there was a problem, and damage to personal property is what renter's insurance is for. Word to the wise to have renters insurance, and not to leave valuable things in that type of storage unit.
