The city's Department of Aviation says 570 flights have been canceled Tuesday at O'Hare International Airport. The airlines also have canceled more than 110 flights at Midway International Airport.

O'Hare was reporting delays of up to one hour earlier Tuesday, but delays were reduced to about 15 minutes late in the day. There were delays reported at Midway.
