Sep 12, 2005, 01:00 ET from The U.S. Postal Service

    NEW YORK, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- For many people affected by hurricane
 Katrina, life is beginning to get back to normal as mail services resume in
 much of the area. In communities where delivery is not yet possible, customers
 can pick-up mail in post offices or at temporary postal vans. This means that
 many items delivered through the mail, such as assistance payments and
 medications, got through to those that needed them. For many evacuees, help is
 on the way as USPS continued to process and deliver recovery assistance checks
 and route mail to new addresses of those who have filled out Change of Address
 forms. Check out the latest news about the Postal Service's recovery efforts
