New Bank Failures: Week of Sept. 21

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- New bank failures last week included both banking subsidiaries of Irwin Financial (IFC), bringing the total number of banks and savings and loans shut down by regulators this year to 94.

All 119 bank failures since the beginning of 2008 are detailed on TheStreet.com's interactive bank failure map:

Georgia continues to lead all states with 21 bank or thrift failures during 2008 and 2009, followed by Illinois with 14 failures, California with 13, Florida with eight and Nevada with five failures.
