To All Depository Institutions, and Others Concerned, in the Second Federal Reserve District:
Due to the severe weather conditions in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands resulting from Hurricane Georges and to the closing of the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, delays have occurred in the presentment of cash items, in the return of unpaid items, and in the forwarding of advices of nonpayment with respect to depository institutions in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Effective immediately and until such time as conditions permit us to resume presenting and returning cash items, this Bank will defer credit for items we identify as drawn on, or cash items returned to, depository institutions having routing numbers with 0215, 0216, 2215, or 2216 prefixes.
