USPS Domestic Service Disruptions and Post Office Closures – Updated 3/2/2024

SHARE

The United States Postal Service (USPS) has provided the following information regarding disruptions and suspensions of domestic services and facilities. These disruptions are based on notifications issued by the USPS to the public through industry alerts and social media posts.

Additionally, issues reported by the media that may significantly impact USPS operations in specific areas may also be included here. These will be clearly identified, particularly if they are related to weather events or natural disasters.

USPS Domestic Services cover mail and package shipments within the contiguous United States, as well as those destined for Alaska and Hawaii and U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam.

Furthermore, military and diplomatic mail (APO/FPO/DPO) are technically classified as “domestic” services in terms of U.S. Postal Service operations and pricing. If USPS becomes aware of any delivery problems or suspensions related to APO/FPO/DPO mail, this information will also be included here.

It’s important to note that once APO/FPO/DPO mail is handed over to the military for international transport, USPS no longer controls its delivery outside the United States.

Some APO/FPO/DPO mail and certain territories may still require customs forms, even if they are priced as domestic services.

This information was last updated on March 2, 2024.

USPS Domestic Facility Closures and Network Disruptions

Winter Weather

A powerful winter storm continues to batter the Western U.S., bringing blizzard conditions to the Sierra Nevada and heavy snow to multiple mountain ranges.

Widespread wind advisories and warnings persist across the region, with gusts reaching up to 75 mph in higher elevations. In the Sierra Nevada, snowfall rates exceed 3 inches per hour, accompanied by winds over 100 mph, resulting in impassable roads and whiteout conditions.

An additional 2 feet of snow is expected in the Sierra Nevada by Sunday, with light to moderate precipitation lingering in the northwest through Monday before another system hits northern California.

Wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and Parts of Oklahoma

A record-sized Wildfire continues to ravage the Texas Panhandle, prompting evacuations and power outages among a number of affected communities. Normal postal services and deliveries will be impacted for days until the fire is under control.

While USPS has not issued a service alert for specific communities, shippers should expect significant delays for mail and packages arriving to residents and businesses in affected areas.
