Hurricane Harvey causes mail and parcel delays in Texas

 

Hurricane Harvey battered the Texas’ Gulf Coast – causing catastrophic flooding and severe devastation.

The Category 4 hurricane made landfall northeast of Corpus Christi, TX late Friday night, on August 25, 2017, with 130 mph winds and devasting amounts of rainfall. It stretched along Texas’ Gulf Coast from Corpus Christi to Houston, and inland to Austin and San Antonio. Also impacting parts of Louisiana and Mississippi.

Some areas of Texas may see more than 50 inches of rain, as rainfall could last for weeks to come.

In Houston, TX, countless residents were trapped in flooding homes and rescue efforts are still underway all across Houston. Take a quick look at the video below to see part of the storm’s impact:

This will impact the processing and delivery of all mail and parcel shipments throughout the affected areas until further notice.

Mail processing and shipment delivery facilities are closed and will remain closed until conditions are safe to travel on local roads. Contingency plans are being put into place, wherever possible, to help ensure shipments arrive to their destinations as quickly as conditions permit.
