WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service says it is sending at least a dozen workers from Nebraska to help out with mail delivery in northwestern North Dakota.

Mail delivery to some customers in the oil boom town of Williston has been disrupted after four carriers quit.

The Williston Herald reports that the resignations likely were due to long hours and long weeks associated with short staff.

Officials say they are currently advertising for permanent workers in the Williston area. The jobs pay between $50,000 and $55,000 annually.
