Colorado Floods: Some Credit Unions Closed
Unabated rainfall in northern Colorado has led to massive flash floods that have killed at least three people, damaged dozens of homes and cars, and closed hundreds of roads, schools and businesses, including approximately 20 credit union branches and offices in Boulder and surrounding areas including Longmont, Lyons, Jamestown and Nederland.
The floods forced at least four Boulder-based credit unions – Elevations CU, Premier Member FCU, Boulder Valley CU and Boulder Municipal Employees FCU – to close branches, phone centers and other back office operations Thursday.

Credit Unions Close, Re-Open in Boulder
Because officials at the Boulder Office of Emergency urged all residents to “stay home if at all possible,” credit union branches may be forced to remain closed on Friday. However, two credit unions are expected to re-open some branches Friday, according to social media site postings.
