TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A winter storm slamming the eastern parts of the country is also causing thousands of flights to be canceled today.

More than 2,000 flights were canceled yesterday.

Chicago's O'Hare Airport is seeing the most problems this week with more than 650 flights delayed or canceled.

There also are issues at the Los Angeles airport, because of all the flights being backed up, officials say.

At Tucson International Airport, there have been delayed flights from and going to cities all over the country, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver and Phoenix.

Flights are expected to resume later today in much of New England, but there will still be delays as the airports play catch-up.
