SAN ANTONIO, TX — U.S. Postal Service employees in facilities along the Texas Gulf Coast 783, 784 and 785 ZIP code areas will be working behind the scenes, around-the-clock to process and deliver mail, and to restore postal facilities and equipment damaged by Hurricane Alex.
With the exception of the South Padre Island Post Office, all Post Offices in the 783, 784 and 785 ZIP code areas expect to return to normal delivery and retail operations on Thursday, July 1. The South Padre Island Post Office is expected to resume operations once officials reopen the bridge between the mainland and the island.
In a few locations where roads are impassable or unsafe for travel following the storm, mail delivery services may be temporarily curtailed until normal conditions are restored. Those few customers who are unable to receive mail delivery may pick up their mail at their local delivery Post Office.
