USPS asks us to inform the designated operators of UPU member countries that Hurricane Harvey, a major Category 4 storm, hit southeast Texas on Saturday, 26 August 2017. High damaging and life-threatening winds with destructive hurricane conditions impacted the entire area. Over 800 Houston-area flight cancellations and delays, road closures, and severe weather have affected transport, processing and inbound and outbound delivery operations in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and surrounding areas. More than 300,000 residents are without power.

USPS thanks all designated operators for their understanding and will provide updates when available.
