MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The massive snowstorm that's paralyzed a large swath of the country from Chicago to New York has caused dozens of flight cancellations at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport for a second day.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan tells Minnesota Public Radio that Chicago is the No. 1 destination from the Twin Cities, so the storm is having a major impact at MSP because very few flights are going to make it in or out of Chicago Wednesday.

Hogan says five flights that were supposed to land in Chicago Tuesday were diverted to the Twin Cities, but most passengers got hotel rooms and relatively few travelers spend the night at the airport.

Otherwise operations are normal at the Minneapolis airport, where it's mostly sunny Wednesday.
