Severe storms, tornadoes and flooding have caused significant damage to areas of South Dakota.
The counties of Beadle, Brown, Clark, Davison, Hanson, Hutchinson, Miner, Sanborn, Spink and Yankton were declared Federal Disaster Areas on May 22, 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 and floods.
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.
