According to Wikipedia, the United States Postal Service (USPS), also known as the Post Office, U.S. Mail, or Postal Service, is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government that is responsible for providing postal service in the United States, including its insular areas and the states that are associated with it.

This includes providing postal service to the states associated with the United States. It is one of the few government agencies explicitly authorized by the U.S. Constitution.

Aside from federal holidays, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is responsible for delivering mail six days a week.

However, this does not mean that there aren't any exceptions to the rule.

Residents of some states, including Montana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Massachusetts, have been making complaints about their mail going missing over the past few months.

This issue has been linked to delivery delays that have been caused by a lack of staff. However, there are a number of other significant reasons why mail delivery is delayed.

Hurricane Ian Disrupts the Postal Service

Storm Ian slammed Florida on Sept. 28 as a Category 4 hurricane, CNN reported. According to the news site, it made landfall along the southwestern coast of Florida at Cayo Costa and is one of the fiercest storms to ever hit on the west coast of the state.

As a direct consequence of this, over one million people in Florida are present without electricity, and some of these individuals are unable to leave their houses because of the rising water.

"Our top priority is the safety of our customers and employees," the USPS says on its website. "A destructive Hurricane Ian made landfall along the west coast of Florida. There are impacts to USPS operations in areas affected by the powerful storm."
