ABA Statement on Hurricane Michael

By Rob Nichols, ABA president and CEO

​“Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those in the path of Hurricane Michael, which has now made landfall in Florida. ABA is working closely with state bankers associations to assist our members affected by the storm, and we continue to coordinate closely with the relevant federal agencies to ensure that the banking system remains operational and accessible.
 
“On the heels of Hurricane Florence, we are particularly concerned about those communities facing a second devastating blow in less than a month. We will continue to monitor the path of this storm closely, and we look forward to joining with our members in supporting recovery efforts.”
