Message from the Commissioner - December 2010 Floods
Commissioner William Haraf urges Department of Financial Institutions licensees to grant appropriate latitude to customers affected by the severe flooding resulting from the December storms. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday, December 21 proclaimed a state of emergency in Kern, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo and Tulare counties due to extreme weather and storm conditions.
Because of the property damage and the widespread effect it will have on the economy in these counties, the Commissioner encourages the Department’s licensees to work with customers in dealing with the economic hardships of this disaster.
