As a resident of the State of Illinois and customer of Chase (banking and credit cards), I received the following message in reference to the aftermath of Sunday’s massive storm that included dozens of tornadoes (~80) which killed at least 6 people, flattened hundreds of homes in Illinois alone, and led to our Gov. to declare 15 counties as disaster areas.

Clearly this is the right thing to do and I commend Chase for proactively sending out such a message.
