Two Kentucky Post Offices Closed Due To Flooding

Mail Delivery Continues In Many Areas

KENTUCKIANA POSTAL DISTRICT – Rising flood waters are hampering mail delivery and has led to a pair of Post Office closings along the Ohio River. The Glenview and Harrods Creek, KY, Post Offices are flooded, making them inoperable.

“We are dealing with delivery issues in several areas due to flooding,” said Rosemary Miller, Manager of Post Office Operations. “We will make every attempt to deliver as much mail as possible where conditions are safe and mailboxes are accessible.”

Miller said some deliveries were missed in Prospect due to impassible streets or because roads and mailboxes were washed out. “We ask for customers’ patience as we work through these issues,” she added.

Retail services for Glenview and Harrods Creek customers are available at the Prospect Post Office, 9523 U.S. Highway 42, where Post Office box customers may also pick up their mail beginning tomorrow.

Prospect customers whose mail delivery has been affected by flooding can pick up their mail, with proper identification, at the Prospect Post Office as well. The Prospect Post Office is open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.

If you have any questions or concerns about your mail delivery, you can reach your local Post Office by calling (800) 275-8777.
