CHICAGO (AP) - A winter storm forecast to bring up to 2 feet of snow to the East Coast has contributed to more than 200 flight cancellations at Chicago’s two major airports

The Chicago Department of Aviation said late Monday 190 flights have been canceled at O’Hare International Airport. The department reports airlines were also reporting delays of about 15 minutes because de-icing issues.

The Aviation Department reports around 30 cancelled flights at Midway International Airport, where there were also delays of about 20 minutes.
