A number of banks have closed branches on Monday ahead of Tropical Storm Irma’s arrival in Georgia.
SunTrust and Wells Fargo, the two largest banks in metro Atlanta by deposits, closed all of their branches in Georgia because of Tropical Storm Irma. Bank of America on its website said some branches affected by Irma also will be closed.
San Francisco-based Wells Fargo had 281 branches in Georgia as of June 2016.
“The storm is being closely monitored, and decisions will be made for additional closures as Hurricane Irma progresses,” Wells Fargo said in a media alert. “The safety of team members and customers is Wells Fargo’s highest priority.”
SunTrust has 245 in Georgia. SunTrust also said eight branches in South Carolina and all Florida branches remain closed.
