CHICAGO (AP) Operations at Chicago's two airports are mostly back to normal after a storm left behind 9 inches of snow and forced the cancelation of more than 1,000 flights.

There were still some cancellations Wednesday morning as the storm settled over the East Coast and continued to disrupt flight schedules around the country.

According to the aviation tracking website FlightAware.com, 132 flights in and out of Chicago were canceled for Wednesday. Most of them were at O'Hare International Airport.

At Midway International Airport, Southwest Airlines has resumed operations after canceling all its flights for several hours at the height of the storm on Tuesday.

There were no significant delays reported at either airport Wednesday.
