September 1

September 1, 2005

 

Effective immediately, the Postal Service is not accepting any Standard Mail (letters and flats) 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, 704

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 ZIP Code areas.

 

Service updates are at www.usps.com, click on Service Updates, Hurricane Katrina.
