Alaska – Potential Mailing Impacts

12/03/2018

We are committed to providing our customers with the most up-to-date information for all potential delivery service disruptions.

At this time, we are closely monitoring the aftermath of the massive earthquake and aftershocks in Anchorage, Alaska which occurred around 8:30 a.m. AKST on Friday.   A disaster declaration has been issued in Alaska.

While Anchorage continues to catch a break from its typically bitter cold air, the weather and decreasing daylight may cause some obstacles as crews and residents clean up from Friday’s damaging 7.0 magnitude earthquake.  Over two dozen mainline water breaks have occurred in the city, leaving some residences flooded.

Evacuations have taken place throughout the city as stores, buildings and homes have been impacted. Road and bridge damage has also been reported in and around the city.  We are anticipating delays; however we are unsure of when the clean up process will be completed.

Please contact your Account Manager for any additional information.
