Acceptance of Mail Remains in Place
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15- The Postal Service announced today it has placed a temporary hold on all mail destined to the nation of Haiti.
The action comes in response to the cancellation of normal flight operations by air cargo contractors into and out of the island nation, where emergency relief efforts are continuing as a result of a devastating earthquake on Jan. 12.
Mail addressed to Haiti is continuing to be accepted by the Postal Service, and will be held until transportation arrangements become available.
Additional information regarding acceptance and movement of mail to Haiti will be provided as it becomes available. Updates are posted online at http://www.usps.com/international/serviceupdates.htm#H17.
