Hurricane Michael made landfall Wednesday in the Florida Panhandle as a high-end Category 4, bringing destructive winds, dangerous storm surges, and flash flooding.

Michael spread a swath of heavy rain from the Florida Panhandle to the mid-Atlantic and southeast New England, with peak storm surge inundation of 9 to 14 feet above ground. Maximum sustained winds of 155 mph were recorded and wind gusts over 50 mph were clocked as far north as southern New Jersey, with reports of trees or power lines downed from the Florida Panhandle to the Washington D.C. metro area. Up to 1.6 million customers were without power, at one time.

In addition to numerous Post Office closures, logistics partners are reporting service embargoes on all shipments traveling to and from the states of Florida and Georgia through the weekend. In addition, service delays can be expected for neighboring states and gulf coastlines. All mail in transit will be held within their network until it is safe to deliver.
