The U.S. Postal Service is monitoring the progress of Hurricane Matthew. With its current track, the hurricane is poised to have significant impacts along the Florida coast and northward into Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. In preparation, the USPS has begun to take the necessary steps to prepare for the storm.
At this time, the Governor of South Carolina has issued an evacuation order for the counties around Charleston, SC, effective 3:00 PM. today. Specific offices impacted will be shared shortly. Also, the Governor of Florida has asked for voluntary evacuations in coastal, barrier islands, and low lying areas along the east coast.
As the impacts to postal operations are identified, updated information will be posted to the USPS Alerts website accessed through the RIBBS webpage, http://ribbs.usps.gov/ and http://about.usps.com/
