Largest CUs power outage affects thousands
VIENNA, Va. (6/19/08)--A power outage at the headquarters of Navy FCU in Vienna, Va., temporarily cut access to the credit union’s website and phone system Tuesday. The website and phone systems were restored Tuesday evening. No financial data was lost in the outage, Jennifer Sadler, Navy Federal public relations manager, told News Now. On Monday night, a storm in Virginia caused Navy Federal to lose power. Generators kicked in, but the credit union’s data center was shut down. The credit union received e-mails and inquiries in its branches from members who couldn’t access the website or make online transactions. Members could still conduct business by visiting their local Navy Federal branch, Sadler said. Navy Federal has $33 billion in assets and three million members.
