USPS aims to deliver mail in DC after Hurricane Sandy
Monday - 10/29/2012, 12:01pm EDT
Postal Service employees in the Washington area will attempt to deliver mail Tuesday, a day after Post-tropical Cyclone Sandy flooded streets, knocked over trees and power lines and left hundreds of thousands in the region without power.
USPS will assess Sandy's impact throughout the day and release more information on specific offices, according to an email from a Postal Service spokesman to Federal News Radio.
On Monday, postal employees continued to work "around-the-clock" as Sandy arrived to ensure mail was delivered. USPS said it was prepared to make all deliveries and collections throughout Monday.

If local, state or federal emergency management officials call for a mandatory evacuation, the Postal Service will suspend its services, including mail processing, mail delivery, mail collection from collection boxes, bulk mail and retail lobby services.

Meanwhile, for a second consecutive day, DC-area non-emergency federal employees are taking excused absences, with the exception of feds required to telework, on official travel outside of the Washington area, on leave without pay or on an alternative work schedule day off.
