More banks in distress

FDIC: Number of troubled banks rises to 416

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. reported Thursday that the number of distressed banks rose to the highest level in 15 years as its insurance fund continued to shrink. More lenders ran into financial trouble during the second quarter with recession saddling banks with soured loans, according to the report. The FDIC said that the number of troubled banks rose to 416 at the end of June from 305 at the end of March. This is the largest number of banks on its "problem list" since June 30, 1994, when 434 banks were on the list, which isn't disclosed by the FDIC.
