OCC Allows National Bank Offices Affected by Severe Weather in Northeast to Close

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

In issuing the proclamation, Timothy Long, Senior Deputy Comptroller for Mid-Size/Community Bank Supervision, 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.
