Hurricane update

Following Hurricane Katrina, a major concern of the USPS was locating and assuring the safety of its employees in the affected area. As of yesterday, all 6,052 missing or unaccounted employees were accounted for — with no serious physical injuries.

One of the many lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina was the importance of having customers file a Change of Address (COA) as quickly as possible after being displaced. This helped them receive vital information and remain in contact with friends and relatives. Change of addresses can be done on-line at the Web site as well as by mail or over the phone.

The Houston Chronicle reports that USPS has suspended delivery, collection and other services in areas covered by mandatory evacuations affected by Hurricane Rita which is due to hit the Texas coast sometime late today or early tomorrow.
