LAWLS Customers-Urgent Notice: Shipment Delays
The US Post Office has advised LivingAfterWLS that postal operations are currently in the recovery phase in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy that struck the eastern seaboard at the close of business Monday, October 29. Numerous locations were left without power and many offices remained closed through Wednesday, October 31. Numerous trucks -- Mail Transport Equipment (MTE) -- were also decomissioned due to major flooding, high winds, and power outage. The post office reports that "recovery phase" mail pieces are moving slower than normal and that electronic tracking status has been adversely affected. Please allow an additional 4-5 business days for destination delivery of all mail pieces. LivingAfterWLS is working with our local post office to ensure packages to our customers are routed properly and we anticipate by mid-week (November 7) packages will arrive promptly at your door. Thank you for your understanding at this time.
