Postmaster General visits Gulf Coast

Postmaster General Jack Potter visited the Gulf Coast late this week. He met with employees and toured postal facilities in communities hit hard by Hurricane Katrina.

Potter thanked USPS employees for their contributions to the Postal Service’s “Herculean effort” responding to communication needs, reconnecting customers and employees, and re-establishing service in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Delivery service has been restored to 86% of affected addresses in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. Full service is available at 427 Post Offices, with partial service at 53 Offices.
