Four months af­ter a tor­nado dam­aged its roof, the Man­hat­tan post of­fice will re­open Mon­day for cus­tomers with post of­fice boxes, with 24-hour ac­cess to their boxes.

Cus­tomers can pick up pack­ages or let­ters at the ser­vice door from8:30 a.m. to 4: 30 p.m. Mon­day through Fri­day and from 9 a.m. to noon Satur­day, ac­cord­ing toU.S. Postal Ser­vice spokes­woman Bev­erly Howard.

The re­tail counter will not yet be open for ser­vice.

An EF-1 tor­nado hit Man­hat­tan’s down­town areaon­the evening of June 26, caus­ing dam­age to the post of­fice and down­ing some power lines and trees. Since then, cus­tomers have been pick­ing up their mail at the New Lenox post of­fice.

All re­pairs to the post of­fice have been com­pleted, Howard said.
