Snowy weather prompts hundreds of cancellations

Posted: Updated:

All of the snow this week has caused plenty of travel delays across the country and Illinois.

In Peoria, Wayne A. Downing International is reporting 5 cancelled flights from Chicago. 

Reports say nationwide more than 1,300 flights have been cancelled, not to mention more than 1,000 delays.

Peoria airport spokesman Gene Olson said they are prepared for everything.

"We've got two big diesel heaters," Olson explained, "and snow is a lot better than ice. All we're worried about is the planes having proper traction on the runway."
