|Snow Causes Cancelation of Hundreds of Flights in Chicago|
|Monday, 23 January 2012|
Friday saw the cancelation of hundreds of flights in and out of Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and Midaway International Airport as snow covered the region in a thick cold blanket. As of 3:30 pm 700 flights had been canceled. O'Hare is a major hub in the U.S. and is the second busiest airport in the country, behind Atlanta.
Chicago and the surrounding region was under a winter storm warning until midnight on Friday and the city's snowplows had a difficult time keeping the roads clear. The estimated amount of snowfall in the Chicago area was 4-6 inches with some areas receiving as much as 9 inches. The expected path of the storm was to take it east toward New York, possibly affecting regions as far south as Washington.
