For a second straight day, some of John Wayne Airport's scheduled arrivals from and departures to Chicago-area airports and other Midwestern hubs were canceled.
By about 11 a.m. Wednesday, two United Airlines departures to O'Hare International Airport and one departure to Baltimore were canceled due to the storms hitting the Midwest and Northeast. Additionally, nine arrivals were canceled from various airports.
In Chicago, 20.2 inches of snow had fallen through midday Wednesday, prompting airlines based at O'Hare to cancel all their flights until Thursday. Midway, the smaller Chicago airport, and Boston's Logan International Airport were also closed Wednesday, according to The Associated Press.
