CHICAGO — Hundreds of flights are being canceled at Chicago's two airports as a deep freeze lingers in the city.

The city's Department of Aviation says Tuesday that airlines have canceled nearly 900 flights. Most of the cancellations — 750 of them — were reported at O'Hare International Airport. Another 125 were canceled at Midway International Airport, where delays were about 35 minutes.

On Monday, airlines canceled about 1,700 flights at the two airports, while 1,300 were canceled Sunday when nearly foot of snow fell on the city.

The National Weather Service says the temperature is 10 degrees below zero at O'Hare, although the wind chill made it feel significantly colder.
