Air travel problems, risky roads

CHICAGO (AP) - Dozens of unlucky passengers will spend a second night camped out a Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

They include a newlywed couple from Ireland headed to a honeymoon in San Diego. About 100 flights were canceled today in Chicago. About 500 flights were canceled there yesterday because of the weather.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the New York metro area's Newark airport has been experiencing delays of more than four hours, and the waits at Kennedy are about three hours.

Auto travel in parts of the nation's midsection and Northwest has been treacherous today. At least 29 people have been killed in crashes on rain-and ice-slickened roads since Tuesday.       The weather service has posted winter storm warnings and advisories for large parts of the West, plus parts of the Midwest and the Northeast.
