City Bank has temporarily closed its Houston branch and Beaumont mortgage location due to flooding in south Texas. City Bank is monitoring the situation with plans to reopen the affected locations after the situation can be more carefully assessed. Customers can monitor the status of these locations by calling 1-800-687-2265 or by checking for alerts posted on the City Bank Facebook news feed.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to our employees and those in our communities affected by the recent devastation as a result of Hurricane Harvey,” says Cory Newsom, President and CEO. “We have temporarily closed our Houston and Beaumont locations so that our employees and their families can take the necessary steps to seek safety.”
To help with immediate and ongoing rebuilding efforts, City Bank has donated $25,000 to the American Red Cross in addition to $10,000 to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund established by the Texas Bankers Foundation. “Aiding and recovering from a tragedy such as this will take time and contributions from so many. I encourage others who can give to do so through the American Red Cross or other agencies providing relief for victims in south Texas,” added Newsom.
Additionally, City Bank is working closely with affected customers. Account holders and business owners are encouraged to contact City Bank to make necessary arrangements in regards to interrupted financial services due to Hurricane Harvey.
