For most credit unions in the metropolitan Atlanta area and North Georgia, the snow and now dangerous icy road conditions has led to many closing shop for today.
On its website, Georgia Credit Union Affiliates reported its Duluth office would be closed today as well due to the inclement weather. However, its CUSO, Cooperative Services Inc., is up and running on a skeleton crew. CSI provides a number of services to more than 140 credit unions including ACH, ATM and debit services, item processing and shared branching.
The league said individual departments have provided credit unions with contact information for emergency situations and most staff is available via e-mail.
Several major highways in Atlanta are now closed due to roads that have accumulated thick layers of ice. There is a winter storm warning in effect until 7:00 p.m. tonight. Freezing rain and sleet is also expected again tonight and tomorrow.
