Hundreds of flights canceled at Chicago airports

CHICAGO – Airlines at Chicago's two major airports have canceled about 330 flights because of a storm that's dumping up to six inches of snow in the city.

Meanwhile at Midway International Airport, about 40 flights have been canceled. Delays are also being reported there because of de-icing.
