Hurricane Ike UPDATE - US Postal Service UPDATE


Well, no need to update you on the destruction that took place, but here is an update from the US Postal Service about postal service in the Houston/Galveston areas as of this morning.  Had mail drop last week and need to know if it is going to be in home?  Have mail dropping this week?  Check this out:

September 14, 2008 3 p.m. ET

Please Note: The Postal Service is moving generators to facilities that have no power to expedite mail processing and distribution. In locations where roads are impassable or unsafe for travel, mail delivery services may be temporarily curtailed until normal conditions are restored. Those few customers who are unable to receive mail delivery may pick up their mail at their local delivery Post Office. Update follows:


Post Offices in the Victoria and Corpus Christi areas (ZIP Codes 779 and 783, respectively) will resume services no later than Monday morning. There may be a few, isolated places where standing water or roads closed by local officials may cause mail to be curtailed until road conditions return to normal. All post offices are open, so customers can pick up mail there if road conditions prohibit delivery.

Galveston - 2 offices without power. Road to island closed, facility status unknown.

Post Offices in the city of Houston (ZIP Code area 770) are set to reopen on Monday, with the exception of Nassau Bay Station and Albert Thomas Station, where mandatory evacuation orders remain in effect.

Retail Post Office lobby services will be available at Post Offices in Houston on Monday, except at Nassau Bay (77058) and Albert Thomas (77059 and 77062) stations.

Mail delivery will resume in the city of Houston on Monday where local conditions permit, except for ZIP Codes 77058 and 77059.

All operations in the greater Bryan area (ZIP Code area 778) are operating normally, and the Processing & Distribution Facility is processing mail today.

All Post Offices and Postal Service operations in the surrounding areas outside the city of Houston (ZIP Code areas 773, 774, 775, 776, 777), encompassing the greater Houston, Beaumont, Bay City, Freeport, and Galveston areas, will resume operations, provided any mandatory evacuation order has been lifted.


Many areas in Calcasieu, Cameron, Beauregard, Allen, Iberia, Jeff Davis, St.Mary, St. Charles, St. John, St. James, Jefferson, Lafourche, Plaquemines, Vermillion and St. Bernard Parishes are still experiencing flooding along waterways, as well as low-lying areas.

West Lake, Vinton and Sulphur Post Offices are open with limited service, operating on generator power until electricity restored by local utility companies.

Delcambre and Avery Island Post Offices (705 ZIP Code area) are inaccessible due to flood waters. Dulac, Montegut, Barataria, Grand Isle and Lafitte Post Offices are inaccessible due to flooding.

Hackberry and Cameron Post Offices are inaccessible due to flood waters. Efforts are underway to establish a temporary post office, and residents of Hackberry and Cameron can pick up their mail at Lake Charles Drew Station.

Lake Charles is without power but generators will allow limited service on Monday, September 15, 2008.
