UPDATE: YOU could still post or receive a letter, buy a stamp or pay a bill at Gympie Post office on Wednesday, but it was cash transactions only and then only at the side window of the PO box area yesterday.   A massive fall of thunderstorm rain on Tuesday afternoon was apparently more than the roof and guttering could handle and the normal business area was flooded, creating the possibility of electrical hazards as staff rushed to save.   An Australia Post spokesman yesterday said the organisation was hoping for a next-day delivery on its promise to re-open as soon as possible.   "Pending a full safety check, services at the Gympie Post Office will return to normal (on November 3)," he said.   "In the meantime, the Post Office lobby is open for parcel and mail collection and customers can access their PO boxes.   "Cash sales can also be accepted at the hatch," he said.  

EARLIER: GYMPIE Post Office, as most of us know it, is closed, after flooding from Tuesday's massive rainfall in the CBD.

Customers can still post a letter or buy a stamp at the side door, near the private post boxes.

But, as Arthur Gorrie reports, it is cash only until things return to normal.

Exactly when that is likely is the question we put  to Australia Post, who have promised a response as soon as possible.
