GLOSTER, LA (KSLA) -

"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds," but flooding will force some postal customers northwest Louisiana to nearby towns to pick up their mail for the next few days. 

According to a the United States Postal Service, customers in the following 5 towns will have to head out of town to pick up their mail, thanks to torrential rains and resulting flooding overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday. 

Gloster 71030 – Stonewall 71078                  
Jamestown 71045 – Ringgold – 71068           
Taylor 71080 – Arcadia 71001
Hall Summit  71034 – Coushatta 71019
Pioneer 71268  - Oak Grove – 71263

The corresponding temporary pick-up locations at neighboring post officers are designated in bold. 

Customers can pick up their mail with proper identification at the alternate post offices. Retail and shipping services will also be available, such as Priority Mail Express, Priority Mail and First through Fourth-Class postage. In addition, the USPS says Special Services like Registered and Certified Mail will be available for customers.    

As water recedes in the impacted areas and conditions improve, both mail delivery and retail services will be restored at those five Post Offices.
