OCC Allows National Bank Offices Affected by Hurricane Wilma to Close

WASHINGTON -- The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today issued a proclamation allowing national bank offices affected by Hurricane Wilma to close at their discretion.

In issuing the proclamation, Senior Deputy Comptroller Timothy W. Long said he expects that only those bank offices directly affected by the severe weather will close. Those offices should make every effort to reopen as quickly as possible to address the banking needs of their customers, he added.
