Oklahoma Tornado 5/21/13
The U.S. Postal Service is closely monitoring conditions in the Oklahoma area that have impacted the city of Moore, OK. In the aftermath of yesterday’s tornado, the Moore OK Post Office Branch, 73160 sustained heavy damage and has currently suspended operations. The Santa Fe Station, 73170, is open but is being powered by generators until power is restored to the area.
Retail services are not available at either location, and due to inaccessibility in the devastated areas, delivery will be very limited. Drop shipments for Moore OK Post Office Branch and Santa Fe Station should be taken to the Oklahoma City Processing and Distribution Center, located at 4025 W Reno, Oklahoma City, OK 73125.
Alternate service locations are expected to be announced Wednesday morning, May 22, 2013. Please check back for further updates.

First off, thanks so much to the hardworking USPS folks who got this information turned around and made available for review so quickly – this info is from last week’s Mailers Technical Advisory Committee Focus Group meetings at USPS HQ. I moderate the Informed Visibility sessions along with Jim Cochrane, USPS VP, and his team. For review below, contact me directly with any questions.
From the USPS earlier today:
The U.S. Postal Service is closely monitoring conditions of the wild fires in the California area that currently have impacts to Sycamore Canyon, La Jolla Canyon and Broome Ranch or Venture County. As a result of the wildfires, a mandatory evacuation has been enforced for the previously listed areas.
As impacts are reported, relocated sites will be posted.

For example, data on city delivery operations isn’t reported in real time and nor is data from the Intelligent Mail barcode. In the case of the barcode, the data isn’t readily available until 7 to 10 days later, meaning that “some mailers using IMb have more access to real-time data on mail processing and delivery than is available to Postal Service employees in the plants.”
