Post offices open; roads affecting some deliveries

Staff Report

LUMBERTON — Robeson County post offices are open, although road conditions are still causing problems for mail delivery to some homes following Hurricane Matthew.

“There are still some roads that are inaccessible due to flooding,” U.S. Postal Service Spokesperson Philip Bogenberger said. “Delivery will be restored to those locations as soon as the roads can be safely accessed.”

On Tuesday afternoon, post offices in Lumberton, Fairmont, Pembroke, St. Pauls and Orrum were fully operational. No one answered the phone at the Proctorville location.

Customers affected by flooding who have questions about mail delivery and retail services can call 910-423-2309 or 910-423-4065.

“Like many of our customers, the Postal Service continues to recover from the flooding. We continue to monitor the conditions and regularly check in with employees to ensure that they are safe,” said Sandy Wyrick, manager of the Postal Service’s Mid-Carolinas District. “We live and work in the communities we serve, and our thoughts are with everyone affected by this disaster. We are committed to making every delivery and offering retail services where it is safe so impacted customers can also focus on their recovery.”
