A potent storm traversing the eastern half of the country has produced flooding rain, deadly tornadoes and travel-halting ice and snow and its impacts are far from over.Chicago wasn't immune from the storm's impacts as winds increased Friday night into early Saturday, gusting as high as 50 mph.On Saturday morning, the storm caused flight delays as long as four and a half hours at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, according to FlightAware.Delays escalated later in the day to more than six hours long, with over 1,000 cancellations from O'Hare alone.> HAPPENING NOW: More than 950 flights cancelled at O'Hare International Airport. Right now there is a ground stop at O'Hare for inbound flights due to ice. weatherwatch winterstorm chicagoweather @cbschicago pic.twitter.com/B5cGE4oFp8> > -- Vi Nguyen (@ViNguyen) January 11, 2020Such delays had a ripple effect across the country, including in cities that managed to escape effects from the storm. However, gusty winds are likely to spread across states from New York to Florida through Saturday night, which may add to the delays and cancellations.In addition to impeding air travel, the severe winds affected motorists along the lakeshore as well.Winds blowing southwestward across the southern part of Lake Michigan funneled the water over the beaches and through towns along the shore.
