Weather delays Yellen testimony, causes more travel chaos

|By:, SA News Editor

Janet Yellen's appearance before the Senate Banking Commitee, which was scheduled to take place today, has been postponed, due to a heavy snow storm that's hitting the south and the east. A new date for Yellen's testimony wasn't provided.

The latest weather patterns have already caused over half a million customers to lose power in the southeast.

Around 6,900 flights were canceled or delayed yesterday and another 4,500 have been scrubbed for today.
