USPS Issues Service Disruption Alert for Hawaii

August 24th, 2018

The USPS has issued a service disruption alert for the state of Hawaii. Due to Hurricane Lane there is no mail delivery or pickup on August 24th for Hawaii Island, Maui County, Kauai and Oahu. Though the service disruption alert is only for August 24th, future deliveries and pickups may also be effected. For updates on USPS mail delivery see the Service Disruption Alerts Page.


Getting Local and National Updates

On a national level, you can access detailed information about which delivery units are not accepting drop shipments or whether your Post Office is open today.  If your Post Office is temporarily closed, the USPS will provide information on which facilities are handling the mail volume for that location in the meantime.  Usually, a nearby Post Office will handle the mail temporarily for the area.  In some cases, temporary cluster box units may be installed to provide delivery service to local residents, or if you use a PO Box, your mail will be sent to a box at another Post Office.

You can also access detailed Mail Service Disruption Reports to find the cause of the disruption.  The option of “USPS facilities status” will provide information on whether your facility is slated to be permanently closed.


International Mail Disruptions

For mail being sent to international addresses, this helpful page will provide information such as which services are suspended or restored for countries affected by unfortunate events, such as wars or natural disasters.  Mail addressed to a country seriously affected by hostilities may be returned to you so it is important to stay abreast of any issues abroad.
