Mail delivery interrupted




        Tornado damage kept the U.S. Postal Service from delivering mail to least 2,000 homes on Friday and about 500 on Saturday in Blue Ash, Montgomery and Harper's Point. Some Loveland residents also missed delivery.

        No count was available for Monday's deliveries, but post office spokeswoman Bonnie Manies said carriers are expected to deliver to all intact homes with mailboxes.

        Ms. Manies suggested delivery alternatives for residents who lost their homes or mailboxes:

        • Temporary change-of-address cards can be filed at any post office location.

        • Mail holds, similar to those offered to vacationing households, are avaliable to residents who suffered storm damage. Residents with holds should pick up mail at least once every two to three days.

        The Sycamore branch post office, 4914 Cooper Road, which serves Blue Ash, Montgomery and Harper's Point, is open 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday.

        Loveland residents with missing or destroyed mailboxes can pick up mail at the Loveland branch post office at 200 Loveland-Madeira Road.
