Bank of America and Wells Fargo have begun closing branches in parts of North Carolina as Hurricane Florence threatens the state.

Wells Fargo said Thursday it has closed 58 branches in the state’s eastern region and that other branches could close early Thursday as bank officials continue to monitor the storm. For now, branches in Charlotte and the Triangle, Triad and western North Carolina are scheduled to be open Thursday, the bank said in a press release.

The San Francisco-based bank, which has a large presence in Charlotte, said customers can go to wellsfargo.com for real-time information on specific branches.

Charlotte-based Bank of America did not release the list of branches it has closed. But its branch locator website shows branches are temporarily shuttered along the eastern side of the state.

In a statement, a Bank of America spokeswoman said the bank is monitoring the storm and will take appropriate steps to assist employees and clients who may be impacted.
