About 100 passengers spent the night on cots inside O'Hare International Airport after a winter storm forced airlines to cancel about 1,000 flights yesterday. Aviation Department spokeswoman Karen Pride says ticketing and security lines are long this morning at O'Hare. But she says they're moving and conditions are "much improved" from yesterday.

So far, there are no delays reported at O'Hare or across town at Midway International Airport.

About 80 flights have been canceled this morning at O'Hare.

The storm system dumped about a foot of snow in some portions of Chicago's north and northwest suburbs.
