BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Eight Whitney Bank branches in Louisiana are set to close at the end of August.

Hancock Holding Co., the parent company of Whitney Bank, announced Tuesday it would close the Baton Rouge branches at 9800 Airline Highway, 2600 Citiplace Drive and 11659 Plank Road, along with a branch in Algiers, and one in LaPlace.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/16Jv8tG ) two branches in Alexandria and one in Pineville are also slated for closing Aug. 30.

About two weeks ago, Hancock Holding Co. announced it would close 40 branches in its five-state area by the end of the year.

Hancock President and CEO Carl Chaney had said the closures would have "little impact" on its core markets in New Orleans and along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
