There is currently a delay at LC. I believe an announcement is forthcoming.

I have a record from the 12th that is still in distribution as well and I too need to fix something.

In my experience, authority records would only be "In Distribution" in OCLC for about three days after creating/modifying. However, I have a record that I created on March 12 that I need to modify, and it is still "In Distribution" a week later. Is this normal?
