A hurricane season of destruction, disaster and recovery

first_img 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr While the victims of Hurricane Harvey are just beginning the struggle to get back on their feet, a new wave of devastation is again headed our way, this time in the form of Hurricane Irma. “Credit unions in the path of Hurricane Irma are being advised to take precautions as the storm bears down on the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. mainland,” the NCUA advised. While strong and sometimes violent storms are not unfamiliar to our southern most residents, a storm of this magnitude will no doubt leave another wake of destruction to contend with, and the recovery from this disaster will be another pull on many resources. This is the very reason we spend so much time talking and formulating the crucial disaster recovery plan for credit unions.On a positive note, Credit Unions in Houston are slowly coming back to life. However, the road to recovery will likely be a long one. The National Credit Union Foundation reported there are approximately 600 credit union branches and roughly 6,000 employees and volunteers that have been affected by the storm. Some individual credit unions are doing what they can with their personal resources to assist their staff.For example, in a real display of the Credit Union Difference, some CU’s in Texas are providing child care and hot lunches while their employees work through the arduous task of rebuilding and recovering. Reports of credit unions setting up employee assistance funds and giving extra weeks of PTO are signs of CU’s supporting their employees as they help each other remove carpet and furniture, find new housing and clean up after the storm. The credit union community as a whole has donated over $500,000 to The National Credit Union Fund to provide general aid to those in need. continue reading »last_img read more
