Not yet clear if US employment report to be delayed by storm -BLS

WASHINGTON, Oct 29 (Reuters) - A U.S. official said on Monday that it was unclear if a powerful storm heading toward the country's east coast would delay the release of October's employment report, currently scheduled for release on Friday, just days before the Nov. 6 election.

``We will assess the situation when the weather emergency is over and notify the press and public of any changes at that time,'' said Bureau of Labor Statistics spokesman Gary Steinberg.
