CHICAGO (AP) — Hundreds of flights are being canceled at Chicago’s two airports as a deep freeze sets in on the city.

The Department of Aviation says 350 flights have been canceled so far at O’Hare International Airport. Another 85 flights were canceled Monday morning at Midway International Airport.
