A storm drawing comparisons to a hurricane muscled across the Midwest on Tuesday, snapping trees and power lines, delaying flights at one of nation’s busiest airports and soaking commuters who slogged to work under crumpled umbrellas.
The storm – quickly nicknamed a “chiclone” and “windpocalypse” – swept an area that stretched from the Dakotas to the eastern Great Lakes. Severe thunderstorm warnings blanketed much of the Midwest and tornado watches were issued from Arkansas to Ohio. Flights were delayed at O’Hare International Airport, a major hub for American and United airlines.
