Chicago's Department of Aviation says there aren't any delays.

Airports on the East Coast are reeling from the storm and some remain closed.

Weather officials downgraded Irene from a hurricane to a tropical storm Sunday as the storm's winds lost speed.

As a hurricane, Irene had already unloaded more than a foot of water on North Carolina, spun off tornadoes in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware, and left 4 million homes and businesses without power. At least 11 people have been killed.
