Midwest states hit with more snow
A winter storm that moved across the Upper Midwest over the weekend ended Sunday after delivering a ninth-consecutive day of snowfall in Chicago and snow and freezing rain in Michigan and Indiana.
After 10 inches of snow fell in northern Illinois on Friday, another wave of snow moved across the area late Saturday, leaving an additional 3 inches by the time the storm ended Sunday afternoon.
The Chicago Department of Aviation said about 215 flights were canceled at O’Hare International Airport by Sunday. There were 245 flights canceled at Midway International Airport. That is significantly less than the approximately 1,300 cancellations at the two airports Friday.
In western Michigan, a stretch of U.S. 131 in Grand Rapids was closed for about an hour Sunday morning after multiple vehicle crashes.
