Midwest commuters experience Snowstorm as they head back to work

Commuters in Chicago and across the Midwest will experience a snowstorm stuffing more than a foot of snow and snowfall conditions as they head back to work on Monday after the long Thanksgiving weekend.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said that Blizzard warnings were on since on Monday in northeast Missouri through metro Chicago and northeast into Michigan as the storm brought winds up to 45 miles per hour (72 kph) and more than 12 inches (15 cm) of snow to the region.

The service noted as a piece of advice that travel on Monday morning will be “very dangerous to impossible” and the heavy snow was hard to shovel and may result to falling tree limbs and power outages.

The storm caused cancellation of 1,270 flights on Sunday for travelers trying to return home after the Thanksgiving weekend.

Most of the cancellations were flights leaving or arriving at Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Chicago Midway Airport, which put together saw a total of about 900 flights canceled. At Kansas City International Airport, close to 200 flights were canceled.
