HARRISBURG, Pa. (2/9/10)--A branch of Cross Valley FCU was heavily damaged by nearly 20,000 gallons of water when a water pipe ruptured more than a week ago, says the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA). The branch was located at 280 North Sherman Street in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.. The credit union is encouraging members to use other branches or visit its eVirtual Branch at www.crossvalleyfcu.org until a temporary site is up and running later this week, said PCUA (Life is a Highway Feb. 8). "We appreciate the understanding of our members who typically use this branch location. We are working to be able to provide a temporary facility at this same site so members will be able to transact business until all repairs are complete," said Cross Valley FCU President/CEO Leonard Shimko. The credit union will make a formal announcement after the site becomes available, he added. The credit union posted pictures on Facebook. To view, search "Cross Valley Federal Credit Union."
