Incident: heavy rains and flooding

The country has been experiencing heavy rains and extensive flooding since 23 December 2021. The postal network has been severely affected and some post offices were closed. Certain roads were inaccessible to traffic, which has since caused delays in the delivery of all types of mail.

As of 28 December 2021 the floodwaters in some of the regions specified above have receded.
 
However, owing to office closures and a lack of access roads, the following postcode regions are still impacted, potentially causing delays in mail operations and delivery of postal items: 260xx; 265xx; 280xx; 285xx; 287xx; 40000–40169; 40180–40399; 40400–40449; 40450–40459; 40460–40499; 40500–40999; 42450–42499; 43100–43199; 43800; 43900; 63000 and 64000.
