SAN DIEGO, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- San Diego District Manager John E. Platt said today that virtually all residents and businesses in San Diego County will receive mail delivery today, either from their letter carrier, in their Post Office Box or at temporary Post Offices established for evacuated communities. Express Mail, Priority Mail and First-Class Mail will be delivered as usual. Customers are requested to pick up their mail daily, including from their Post Office Boxes, as volumes will be heavy for a few days. "Thanks to the tremendous efforts of our management staff, our employees and with the support of our labor organizations, we are pleased that mail delivery and Postal Service operations in virtually all locations have returned to normal today, just four delivery days after feeling the impact of Southern California's most devastating wildfires," said Platt. Bonsall will resume normal operations today. Mail previously available in Murrieta was returned to Bonsall yesterday. Residents of Ramona will receive home delivery starting Saturday. Mail will be available at the Carmel Mountain Post Office until 4 pm today, and then it will be shipped back to Ramona. Residents experiencing damaged or destroyed homes or businesses and can no longer receive mail there should contact their local Post Office to make alternative arrangements. Mail that is undeliverable due to property damage will be held for pick-up at local Post Offices or wherever mail is available for that ZIP Code. Residents can contact USPS Consumer Affairs at 858-674-2670 for local information and assistance with issues resulting from fire-related mail delays or damage. Consumer Affairs will maintain extended hours to assist postal customers Mon-Fri 7am to 6pm; Sat. 8am to 4 pm; and Sunday 10am to 3 pm. Consumer Affairs is located at 11251 Rancho Carmel Drive, San Diego, CA at entrance #3. An independent federal agency, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that visits every address in the nation, 146 million homes and businesses, six days a week. It has 37,000 retail locations and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to pay for operating expenses, not tax dollars.
