The Postal Service is continuing to update employees and customers in the aftermath of Irma, which was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm Sept. 11.

The storm brought rain and strong winds to several southeastern states, including Georgia and South Carolina, where dangerous flooding has been reported.

The USPS Service Alerts and USPS Newsroom sites have the latest information.

Irma struck the Caribbean last week before making landfall in Florida, where the storm produced extreme winds and torrential rain.

The Postal Service is also continuing to restore service in Texas following Hurricane Harvey, which caused severe flooding in late August and early September.

Throughout the recent hurricanes, USPS has urged employees to stay safe and provided information about available resources, including the Postal Employees’ Relief Fund and Employee Assistance Program.
