UPDATE: Chicago Flight Disruptions Linger After Storm

CHICAGO (AP) -- The winter snowstorm that hit the Midwest and then the Northeast is continuing to affect air travel to and from Chicago.

Skies are now clear in Chicago, but because of weather on the East Coast airlines at O'Hare International Airport have canceled more than 200 flights.

The Chicago Department of Aviation says some O'Hare flights to and from the eastern U.S. are being delayed by about 35 minutes.

Delays were also still affecting Midway International Airport, where airlines canceled more than 90 flights for the day.

Many of those were Southwest Airlines flights that were canceled through noon.



CHICAGO (AP) -- Snow and low visibility forced the cancellation of hundreds of flights scheduled to fly out of Chicago's two major airports.

The Chicago Department of Aviation said Thursday evening that 300 flights were canceled at O'Hare International Airport. Officials say that's due to winter weather conditions. Flights at O'Hare are delayed 45 minutes.

Midway International Airport was reporting delays of two hours for inbound and outbound flights. There were about 120 cancellations at Midway.

The National Weather Service reports more than 12 inches of snow has fallen at Midway since the start of the storm.
