[ARCHIVED] Mail delivery to storm damaged areas


BEAVERCREEK OH—The tornado that passed through the Dayton area on Memorial Day weekend has destroyed homes, business and left residents devastated. In those locations where roads are impassable or unsafe for travel due to closure by local emergency officials, mail delivery services may be temporarily curtailed until normal conditions are restored. If mailboxes are blocked off and conditions are difficult, letter carriers must always consider safety and accessibility first. Letter carriers are instructed to not deliver to mailboxes and locations which are too hazardous to access.

Mail has been placed on hold for pickup for those customers who are unable to receive mail delivery at:

Beavercreek Post Office, 3541 Dayton-Xenia Rd, Dayton, OH 45432

Customers are required to provide their delivery address and a valid photo ID in order to pick up their mail.

Hold Mail is designed for customers who plan on occupying their homes within 30 days. If you feel you will not be able to occupy your home within 30 days, you need to submit a Change of Address (COA) request with the Postal Service. Be sure to mark “Temporary” on the card. A temporary change of address is designed for customers who plan on returning to their residence within six months.

If you are NOT planning to return to your current address, please submit a permanent COA request. A COA card is available from your letter carrier or at your local Post Office. COA requests also may be filed at, the Postal Service’s website that is available to customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

You may also rent a Post Office Box in your delivery area and all mail can be forwarded to that PO Box.

Customers can call the Postal Service's toll-free number 800-ASK-USPS (800-275-8777), Consumer Affairs 513-684-5794 or the TTY number 877-TTY-2HLP (877-889-2457) for help with any postal related questions they may have.
