Hurricane Florence, a strong storm approaching the eastern seaboard has forced NAFCU to cancel its annual Congressional Caucus for this year and for credit unions in North and South Carolina to shutter branches until the storm passes.

NAFCU on Tuesday afternoon canceled its Washington, D.C. caucus, which had been expected to bring together members of Congress and credit union officials from across the country.

Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall late Thursday between Charleston, S.C. and Virginia Beach, Va.
