Chicago – A winter storm wreaked havoc on Monday in the central-western United States to the point that nearly 1,000 flights were canceled and a plane slipped through the snow and got off the runway at Chicago’s O'Hare airport.
None of the 38 passengers and three crew on board the plane was injured when the incident occurred at about 7:45 a.m. of Monday. The aircraft, from the Envoy Air line, came from Greensboro, North Carolina.
Apart from the flights canceled at O'Hare, which total almost 900, bad weather forced to cancel another 97 at Midway Airport, also in Chicago.RELATED
