ALLEN PARK (WWJ) – A power outage at a Post Office processing center in Allen Park may affect your mail.

The power outage is at the distribution center on Oakwood Boulevard along the Southfield Freeway. As a contingency, sorting operations have been transferred to facilities in Detroit and Pontiac.

A spokeswoman with the Post Office says power isn’t expected back at the distribution center until Wednesday at the earliest.

Employees are asked to call the Hotline phone number, 1-888-363-7462, for reporting instructions.

USPS says there should be minimal disruption to mail service. The contingency plan will remain in place until power is restored.

    One package I have coming from ohio has taken four days so far (tomorrow will be five.) to do nothing more than languish at Detroit distribution center. Minimal disruption? What about the other three packages that I have in the same postal service ‘holding’ pattern? Not even a close guess my friends.
