New Peoples Bank in Honaker, Va., is working through systems outages.

The $813 million-asset bank said in a post on its website that it “is working diligently to address and investigate a recent incident” that is interrupting the operation of its computer systems. 

The bank, which is looking to restore its computer systems “as quickly and safely as possible,” said on its Facebook page that the issues began on Wednesday.
