Hurricane Harvey bearing down, Texas credit unions close shop

At least six of the 13 credit unions based in Corpus Christi, Texas will be closed Friday and Saturday as the coastal city of more than 320,000 is expected to be in the center of Hurricane Harvey when it hits landfall Friday night.

An additional eight credit unions in communities nearby Corpus Christi also announced branch closures for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami reported Thursday afternoon that Harvey has intensified rapidly and is forecast to be a major hurricane at landfall, bringing a life-threatening storm surge, rainfall and high winds to portions of the Texas coast. Hurricane Harvey is expected to generate rainfall of 12 to 20 inches across much of the coastline with isolated amounts as high as 30 inches from Friday through early next week.
