Nova Scotia has experienced relentless rainfall, leading to catastrophic floods of unprecedented magnitude.


The floods in Nova Scotia have unleashed widespread devastation, inflicting significant damage across the entire province and tragically resulting in the loss of several lives. The severity of the situation has compelled the authorities to declare a state of emergency in Nova Scotia.


This situation is affecting the processing and delivery of all mail items (letter post, parcels and EMS) in the entire province of Nova Scotia.



Post Italiane informed the UPU and its members that poor weather conditions at Milan’s Malpensa airport (MXP) have caused severe damage to its facilities over the last few hours. Due to the adverse weather and resulting malfunctioning of airport infrastructure, import and export activities have been severely disrupted at Poste Italiane’s airmail unit.


Separately, Post Italiane updated the UPU on the impact of the fire that occurred at Catania-Fontanarossa Airport. This circular lists the postcode areas of the Sicily region currently affected.


The Islands of Sicily, plus Rhodes and Crete are impacted by wildfires.
