Weather Related Service Updates

 

Updated August 31, 2005 - 2:30 p.m. ET

 

Suspension of Standard Mail and Periodicals Mail acceptance to storm-stricken areas

 

Effective immediately, the Postal Service is not accepting any Standard Mail or Periodicals Mail — from any source — addressed for delivery within the following three-digit ZIP Code ranges: 369, 393, 394, 395, 396, 700 and 701.

 

This emergency action has been taken as a result of severe facility damage, evacuations and other issues resulting from Hurricane Katrina.

 

We are now formulating plans to address the handling of Standard and Periodicals Mail already in the mailstream and addressed for delivery to these seven ZIP Code areas.

 

We will update this information as circumstances warrant.

 

Express Mail Service suspended in areas damaged by

Hurricane Katrina

 

Due to the significant network disruption and catastrophic damage caused by Hurricane Katrina, the sale of Express Mail to the following ZIP Codes is suspended:

 

ZIP Code City/State

365-366 Mobile, AL.

369, 393 Meridian, MS.

394 Hattiesburg, MS.

395 Gulfport, MS.

396 McComb, MS.

700-701 New Orleans, LA.

703 Houma, LA.

704 Mandeville, LA.

 

 

In addition, Express Mail sold between Aug. 26 and Aug. 29 to these ZIP Codes are ineligible for refunds due to Domestic Mail Classification Schedule section 182.51(h), which allows the Postal Service to deny refunds for Express Mail delayed by an “act of God.”

 

The Postal Service will notify customers when the service suspension is lifted.

 

Hurricane Katrina Update:

 

Hurricane Katrina knocked out power to more than 1 million people from Louisiana to Florida's Panhandle. Officials said restoring power could take months.

 

Louisiana District

 

The New Orleans Processing and Distribution Center suspended all operations at noon Sunday. No drop shipments will be accepted to ADC New Orleans 700-704 until further notice. Retail and delivery services have been suspended since Monday for all offices in ZIP Codes 700, 701 and 704.

 

Delivery is scheduled for most of ZIP Code 703, except for Grand Isle and Monegot. Near normal deliveries are scheduled for ZIP Codes 705-708.
