BATON ROUGE, La. – July 16, 2019 – Regions Bank on Tuesday announced a series of financial services, including the waiving of certain fees and loan payment assistance, to help people and businesses in FEMA-declared disaster areas following Hurricane Barry’s landfall.
“We are grateful that the storm did not cause as much damage as anticipated; however, we also recognize that several communities, particularly in southern Louisiana, were inundated by heavy rainfall. In addition to rising waters, we are seeing reports of trees falling on houses and other impacts on individual properties,” said Danny Montelaro, Greater Baton Rouge Market Executive for Regions. “The message we have for clients in the FEMA-declared disaster area is this: If you have damage or losses related to Barry, we have services that can help make the cleanup and recovery easier. Reach out to us online, over the phone or in-person, and we can help you step-by-step.”
