The United States Postal Service has temporarily suspended activity at multiple Houston-area facilities until further notice due to the impact of Tropical Storm Imelda.

Despite damage experienced at the north Houston mail processing facility, USPS says it is “working daily to return to full operations, as soon as we can safely do so.”

USPS released the following statement Monday:

"The safety of employees and customers is our primary concern. We continue to work hard every day to reconnect our customers and businesses with their mail. The majority of our major processing infrastructure is up and running and the mail is moving. Most of our Post Offices are open for business and we are delivering to homes and businesses, wherever it is safe and accessible to do so.

"At our North Houston mail processing facility, which sustained damage during Imelda, we are making progress daily toward restoring normal operations. Following an inspection by structural engineers, the Postal Service began resumption of most processing operations. More than 2,100 dedicated postal employees are working around-the-clock at the Houston plant, in an effort to restore full service as soon as possible.
