Though power has been restored to much of Texas, which enabled credit unions to reopen their branches on Thursday while some managed to open for business on Wednesday, executives are facing another challenge as some of their employees don’t have water or power, according to reports received by the Cornerstone League in Plano, Texas.

“We opened all four Gulf Credit Union drive-thrus for all services on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a skeleton crew. Many of our employees don’t have water and/or power,” Todd Gaudin, president/CEO of the $315 million Gulf Credit Union in Groves, Texas, told the Cornerstone League.  “Although the roads are clearing up, the Rainbow Bridge between Orange and Port Arthur was closed until Thursday. We have a lot of employees that live on the other side of that bridge. Hopefully by Friday things will improve so we can get back to our regular schedule.”
