The Post Office was forced to shut down their operations about noon yesterday due to a sewer line problem, which affected the Luamana’i building where the Post Office is housed.

Postmaster Anetere’a Ioane said the problem started around 11:30 a.m. and by noon they had to close down the post office and clear all out all postal employees. He said there was a strong, offensive odor that was coming from the water dripping into the Post Office from the restroom on the second floor.
