Southern California Post Office Moves Outside Following Earthquake

The 5.4 magnitude earthquake that struck Southern California last week jangled nerves and rocked buildings. The quake also damaged the retail lobby of the West Covina Post Office.

"Postmaster Bob Cajigas acted quickly, doing what any other sensible person would do — he left the building. And he took the lobby with him, setting up shop outside the building until repairs inside are completed," reports the USPS News Link.

The Santa Ana District sent two mobile retail vans to West Covina, located about 20 miles northeast of Los Angeles. West Covina employees added ReadyPost displays, form holders and other furnishings from the retail lobby.

The earthquake did not affect delivery and collection services.
