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

on the sale of postage, products and services to pay for operating
expenses, not tax dollars. The Postal Service has annual revenues of $73
billion and delivers nearly half the world's mail.
