Recent tornadoes have caused significant damage in Kiowa County, Kansas.
The county was declared a Federal Disaster Area on May 6, 2007.
The FDIC is encouraging banks to work constructively with borrowers who are experiencing difficulties beyond their control because of damage caused by the storms.
Extending repayment terms, restructuring existing loans or easing terms for new loans, if done in a manner consistent with sound banking practices, can contribute to the health of the community and serve the long-term interests of the lending institution.
The FDIC will also consider regulatory relief from certain filing and publishing requirements for banks in the affected areas.
