- After dousing Georgia and South Carolina overnight, Hurricane Dorian has shifted slightly east and is headed north at 8 mph, moving into North Carolina Thursday evening as a Category 3 storm, according to the National Hurricane Center. Dorian will likely remain a hurricane through Saturday when it will weaken. Though the eye of the storm has passed Georgia, storm surge warnings remain in effect from Savannah to Virginia.
- U.S. Postal Service deliveries resumed Thursday in the three Florida zip codes affected by the storm. USPS offices in 21 Georgia zip codes, 17 North Carolina zip codes and more than 100 South Carolina zip codes are closed Thursday with no public reopen date.
- UPS alerted customers Thursday that service will cease in evacuation zones in Florida, Georgia and Carolinas. FedEx Ground service is suspended in cities across Florida Georgia and South Carolina, and Express service suspensions also include 26 cities in North Carolina.
On top of flooding, death and destruction, Hurricane Dorian is likely to gum up the works of logistics providers for days after it moves up the East Coast toward Canada.
"To help avoid delays, we encourage you to contact your recipients to verify whether their location is open or able to receive deliveries," read FedEx's service alert.
Amazon announced Monday it would be "proactively closing operations facilities temporarily in the potential impacted areas." The Tampa Bay Times reported Wednesday that though the storm had passed, full operation for Amazon flex drivers had not yet resumed and estimated deliveries communicated to Amazon customers are still showing extended delivery times.
