Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Jan. 6 committee postpones Wednesday hearing as Hurricane Ian bears down on Florida”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol attack postponed its upcoming hearing in light of Hurricane Ian's growing danger.

Chairman Bennie G. Thompson and Vice Chair Liz Cheney released a Tuesday statement announcing that the panel's next public hearing, which was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, will be postponed.

"In light of Hurricane Ian bearing down on parts of Florida, we have decided to postpone tomorrow's proceedings," the lawmakers said. "We're praying for the safety of all those in the storm's path. The Select Committee's investigation goes forward and we will soon announce a date for the postponed proceedings."

The committee did not say when the rescheduled hearing would take place. It was set to be the ninth televised hearing the committee has held thus far and the first one back after the panel took a summer hiatus. 

The storm made landfall in Cuba on Tuesday morning as a Category 3 major hurricane and is expected to pummel Florida beginning on Wednesday.
