CHICAGO (AP) - Airlines at Chicago’s two major airports have canceled more than 550 flights because of a storm that’s dumping more than a half-foot of snow in the city.

The city’s Department of Aviation says more than 500 flights have been canceled at O’Hare International Airport by Wednesday afternoon. Delays are averaging about 30 minutes or longer.

Meanwhile at Midway International Airport, about 50 flights have been canceled. Delays of up to 20 minutes are also being reported there because of the snow and de-icing efforts.

The National Weather Service in Romeoville says nearly 7 inches of snow has fallen so far at each airport.
