USPS Operational Damage due to Rainfall and Winter Weather

without comments

From a USPS Industry Alert:

With the recent significant rainfall and winter weather, major flooding along the Mississippi, Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas and Meramec rivers is forecast.  While the smaller tributaries of the Mississippi will crest quickly, the larger tributaries and the Mississippi itself will take an extended period of time to crest and then fall below flood stage.  The Postal Service is continuing to monitor the situation and will post updates on the USPS Service Alerts page accessed through www.usps.com and https://ribbs.usps.gov/.
