U.S. Postal Service operations, mail delivery changes as Lane weakens to tropical storm

HONOLULU (KHON2) - On Friday afternoon, Lane weakened from a hurricane to a tropical storm, and its center is expected to pass south of Kauai on Saturday.

Given the changes in forecast, the U.S. Postal Service announced the following updates:

Oahu: Weather and conditions permitting, all post offices on Oahu will be open and providing mail delivery, and there will be mail pickup from blue USPS mail boxes.

Hawaii island: Weather and conditions permitting, there will be mail delivery from these post offices on the west side of the Big Island: Captain Cook, Hawi, Holualoa, Honaunau, Honokaa, Kailua Kona, Kamuela, Kapaau, Kealakekua, and Waikoloa; retail services at those offices, however, will be closed; all other Big Island post offices will be closed completely. There will be no mail pickup from blue USPS mail boxes.

Maui County and Kauai: There will be no mail delivery and all post offices will be closed on Saturday; there will be no mail pickup from blue USPS mail boxes.

“The safety of our employees, customers and the mail is our foremost priority,” said USPS Emergency Manager Chuck Lum. “We will resume our operations as soon as we determine that it is safe to do so.”
