ALG Connect Weather Alert: Hurricane Delta Strengthens Into a Category 2

Hurricane Delta Strengthens Into a Category 2 as it Heads For Laura-Ravaged Louisiana; Hurricane Warnings Issued

Hurricane Delta has strengthened back into a Category 2 as it heads for a Friday landfall on the Gulf Coast with storm surge flooding, damaging winds and rainfall flooding from Louisiana and east Texas to Mississippi. A hurricane warning is in effect from east of Sabine Pass, Texas, to Morgan City, Louisiana, including Lake Charles and Lafayette in Louisiana. A storm surge warning is also in effect from Sabine Pass, Texas, to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, including Calcasieu Lake, Vermilion Bay, Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas and Lake Borgne.


Delta has become better organized and is now a Category 2 with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph. The hurricane is moving northwestward at about 15 mph. Tropical storm warnings are in effect from San Luis Pass to Sabine Pass, Texas; east of Morgan City, Louisiana, to the mouth of the Pearl River, including New Orleans, and for Lakes Pontchartrain and Maurepas. Swells generated by Delta should begin to arrive along the Gulf Coast, from South Texas to the Florida Panhandle and even western Florida Thursday. These swells are likely to generate dangerous rip currents at beaches and could lead to some coastal flooding at high tide in some low-lying areas Thursday, particularly in southern Louisiana. Southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi have the greatest chance of seeing a few tornadoes Thursday night and Friday.


We recognize the severe impact that current conditions are having on our customers and we are committed to restoring service levels as quickly as possible. As a result of these weather issues, the ALG Client Service Team will send daily updates as we monitor the progress and track job level impact.





Update to the Business Customer Gateway


On November 8, 2020 the Business Customer Gateway is getting a new look along with several enhancements to improve your experience. The homepage will provide a snapshot view of the customers Enterprise Payment System balances, the mailer scorecard and the most recent PostalOne! mailings. In addition, Business Service Administrators (BSAs) and BSA delegates will be able to revoke and archive users who have changed roles or have left the company.


While these changes aim to provide a snapshot view of some of the most critical features, the BCG will remain your portal to USPS business services. A guide to the new site is located at
