Downtown Hilo Post Office Reopens
USPS announced on Monday, May 7, 2018, that the Hilo Downtown Post Office has reopened for business. The postal facility, located in the Hilo Federal Building at 154 Waianuenue Ave., closed on May 4 when the federal building was evacuated due to structural concerns in the wake of the earthquakes that have accompanied the eruption.
USPS reminds residents of the evacuated areas of Pāhoa/Puna that they should pick up their mail at the Pāhoa Post Office at 15-2859 Pāhoa Village Road while their neighborhoods are inaccessible.
USPS also advises that all residents who have evacuated in response to the eruption, whether from the officially evacuated neighborhoods or other nearby areas, submit Change of Address forms so that their mail can be redirected to them in a timely manner.
