CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The heat isn’t leaving any time soon and it still seems to affect our postal workers.

The National Association for Letter Carriers Local Branch 1259 tells us they continue to see heat-related illnesses among its workers.

In fact, more are asking to be sent home while on the job because of it.

Angela Valianos lives near the Airline and McArdle area.

Valianos says she worries about those who have to work in this heat.

That’s why she does what she can to help through small gestures like leaving bottled water at her doorstep.

“It is really hard on your legs, on your back, on your neck, and carrying all that mail, it is hard work, walking, walking, walking, it is all concrete,” Valianos said.
