Mail trucks stopped deliveries Saturday in Sanford due to Hurricane Irma. 

Wondering why you didn’t receive your Sanford Herald newspaper today? 

Due to Hurricane Irma the United States Postal Service (USPS) has temporarily suspended delivery to much of South and Central Florida. Because of this the Sanford Herald is offering its current edition online for free. 

A statement on the USPS website reads:

Hurricane Irma continues its destructive path toward the U.S. mainland. Hurricane conditions are expected to begin tonight in the Florida Keys and southern tip of Florida. The Category 4 storm is expected to strengthen again before it makes landfall, bringing fierce winds and dangerous storm surges to heavily populated areas. Federal officials are warning that Irma may devastate Florida coastal regions and those of other southeastern states.
The safety of our employees and customers is our primary concern. USPS has already temporarily suspended operations in many parts of south Florida, including the Keys, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Check “Service disruption alerts” or “Is my Post Office open” under “Residential customers” at this link: for the latest information.

As Hurricane Irma passes through Central Florida you can also check the Sanford Herald's Facebook page at for updates. 

If there are more disruptions in delivery we will notify you as soon as we can. 


From Wikipedia: The words "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" - while by no means an official creed or motto of the United States Postal Service - have long been associated with the American postman. The motto is inscribed on New York's James Farley Post Office, but it has no official status.

Nonetheless the USPS does occasionally cancel deliveries in unsafe weather conditions.
