Hurricaine Sandy Impacts Mail Delivery

NBC4 in Washington, D.C. and other media outlets around the country are reporting, "The U.S. Postal Service worked under regular operations Monday - but advised customers of potential lobby closures due to Sandy and advised letter carriers to use their discretion as to where and when it was unsafe to deliver mail."

According to the reports "Letter carriers were authorized to return to their offices when they determined it was unsafe to stay on their routes."

USPS Capital District Manager Kelvin Williams is quoted as saying, "“We give every consideration to safety. We will make sure that our postal employees are not in harm’s way while performing their duties and we will ensure that each post office is safe for our customers."
