Having a 701 zip code in Jefferson Parish is causing many inconviencences for mail recipients.

...along with residents of high and dry Harahan, Elmwood, Jefferson and Algiers -- find themselves still part of the periodicals embargo for New Orleans, where the damage was more significant.
One would think that the Post Office would be more specific about which zip codes are embargoed.

The good news is that New Orleans' main post office opened last week.
The downtown area post office is offering retail services, along with post office boxes, and delivery operations for three zip codes will return to the building in the next few weeks, said Postal Service spokesman David Lewin.
Maybe the Post Office needs to add "hurricane" to its credo.
