Winter Storm

USPS is continuing to monitor the storm as it continues through western Virginia and on up through the Mid-Atlantic and New England. While we can expect to see more power outages, road closures, and transportation issues throughout the areas, facilities remain operational with minimum impacts to delivery and retail.

Postal facilities in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and West Virginia have recovered from the winter storm, though some delivery services still affected in small pockets.

Customers awaiting delivery of mail pieces originating out of any of the previously mentioned regions may also experience a delay in receiving their mail.
