Columbia, SC and Raleigh, NC--As Hurricane Dorian makes it way to the U.S. mainland, the Carolinas Credit Union League and Carolinas Credit Union Foundation are fielding reports of closings and preparing to support any credit union facilities, staff, and volunteers affected by the storm.
The storm’s path is expected to approach the South Carolina coastline early Thursday morning and move towards the North Carolina coast by Friday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.
The League asks that credit unions send notices of facility closings, storm impact, and subsequent damage to email@example.com.
The Carolinas Foundation is prepared to disburse aid to disaster-stricken credit union employees and volunteers through its disaster relief grant application process. Applications must be saved to a device, completed, signed, and emailed to CCUF President Lauren Whaley. The Carolinas Foundation also is ready to receive contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund, which since its establishment has provided more than $2 million in aid to the local, national, and international credit union communities. Any donation collected is disbursed dollar-for-dollar to aid in disaster recovery.
CUNA Mutual Group's Disaster Response Team is also ready to respond should any credit unions need assistance. See contact information provided below.
Dorian's wind intensity has backed off from Sunday's peak, currently a Category 3 hurricane, as Weather.com reports. However, Dorian is still expected to have significant, damaging impact from Florida's Atlantic coast to parts of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and possibly southeast Virginia this week. See the latest forecast and helpful details from Weather.com.
