USPS creates pickup locations for treasury checks, medications in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey

Treasury checks
San Antonio — Hurricane Harvey’s impact on the Texas Gulf Coast resulted in the temporary suspension of mail delivery service, as well as the closure of some postal facilities in the Postal Service’s Rio Grande District. We realize our customers depend on the mail every day and we are working hard to reconnect customers with their mail as quickly as possible.

Most operations in the San Antonio region have resumed. The Postal Service continues to work to restore full service to all customers affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Postal services will resume on a limited basis, including some mail delivery and collections, and retail services at Post Offices where possible, in Texas ZIP Code areas beginning with 779, 782,783, 784, 785 and 789, which includes Gulf Coast, central and south Texas areas affected by the storm.

The Postal Service urges customers interested in information about a specific Post Office to call 1-800 ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777). Operators have been provided specific information regarding delivery and retail services for each office in the areas affected by the hurricane.

In order to ensure mail delivery to your affected area, please observe the following:

  • If your mailbox is badly damaged or destroyed, please replace it with a secure, USPS-approved receptacle with your address clearly displayed in order for your letter carrier to leave your mail at your residence. Mail cannot be delivered unless an appropriate receptacle is provided.
  • If your residence is uninhabitable, please contact your delivery Post Office to request a 30-day hold on your mail. You should complete a change-of-address card to facilitate the delivery of your mail to a valid temporary or new permanent address. Change-of-address cards are available at your local Post Office. Change-of-address information also can be filed on the Postal Service website at www.usps.com.
  • If you file a temporary change of address, be sure to cancel it once you return to your residence or if you file a new temporary or permanent change of address.

While we continue to monitor road conditions in the affected areas, the Postal Service will make every reasonable effort to deliver mail in areas where it remains safe to do so. Decisions regarding mail delivery service will be made on a location-by-location basis, depending on the severity of conditions. The safety of our employees and customers is our primary concern.

Customers with questions or comments about their mail service can contact their local Post Office. Customers may also call toll-free 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777) or send an email to the Postal Service by clicking on Customer Service at the bottom of the Postal Service’s www.usps.com home page.
