Periodicals and Standard Mail in areas affected by Hurricane Katrina

 

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:

  • Mississippi  369, 393, 394, 395, 396

  • Louisiana  700, 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 Periodicals and Standard Mail already in the mailstream and addressed for delivery to these seven ZIP Code areas.
