Florida’s financial services providers stand ready to work with Floridians to meet their financial needs. The Office of Financial Regulation (OFR) has issued a proclamation providing guidance to Florida’s financial institutions in areas where the major impacts of Hurricane Irma are expected.
Floridians preparing for Hurricane Irma should:
- Monitor weather reports and follow the direction of local officials
- Double-check your emergency supplies
- Fill up your vehicles with gas
- Make sure you have enough cash on hand to last for several days
The OFR is continuing to work with the Federal Reserve Bank, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the National Credit Union Administration, to communicate the latest developments and information regarding Hurricane Irma. State and federal agencies will continue to monitor the impact of the storm on the financial services industry in Florida, and information will be available at www.flofr.com regarding financial services availability and areas impacted throughout the state.
