PCUA CUs closed today due to floods
HARRISBURG, Pa. (9/9/11)--The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) is closed today due to flooding in Harrisburg, PCUA announced Thursday. The Susquehanna River flows in front of the association's headquarters and was projected to rise to more than 28 feet by today. Flood stage is at 17 feet. Thursday morning the water level had reached nearly 20 feet, said PCUA (Life is a Highway Sept. 8). The association also closed early on Wednesday and Thursday due to the flooding. "Even though we closed the office early Wednesday afternoon, some employees were unable to make it home due to flooded roads," said PCUA President/CEO Jim McCormack Thursday. "With conditions worsening overnight, more than half of the employees could not make it in to work [Thursday]. Employee safety is our main concern," he added. McCormack said credit unions are also impacted by the flooded conditions, "and we've had reports that some people are having difficulty getting to the turnpike to head for Seven Springs and the Fall Leadership Conference." Rain has fallen throughout central Pennsylvania since Monday as remnants of Tropical Storm Lee caused flooding in the eastern U.S. Pennsylvania and New York have evacuated thousands of people. Rivers and creeks were already swollen from Hurricane Irene's move through the region in late August (Reuters Sept. 8) . In Pennsylvania, major flooding was expected this weekend from York and Lancaster to Williamsport
