Ratings data from Nielsen continues to be delayed due to Hurricane Irma, which forced the closure of the company’s national data center near Tampa, Fla.

Per a statement Monday, Nielsen expect delays to continue “in the near term” and hasn’t provided a timetable for the resumption of normal reports. In addition to evacuations, widespread power outages across Florida could affect when ratings become available again.

In addition to daily ratings, weekly reports that normally arrive on Tuesday will also be late.

When Nielsen provides a further update on its operations, we’ll report it here.
