BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) - Burlington has relocated its post office services after sewage water flooded several feet of its current building.

Post office spokeswoman Stacy St. John says the flooding and failure of a lift station caused 9 feet of sewage water to collect in the office. It is now being pumped into the street, after the office counter closed Monday.

St. John tells the Hawk Eye (https://bit.ly/1zssnbP ) that the current building has no electricity because the basement is flooded. For now, some postal operations have been moved to a former meat shop. Other services are being provided at the post office in West Burlington.

It’s unclear when the affected building will reopen. However, people can still access their post office boxes from there.
