MINNEAPOLIS - Four deaths are now blamed on the winter storm that's moved from the Plains states over the Great Lakes.

It's lost some strength as it moves to the northeast -- leaving a half foot or so of snow in some areas, freezing rain in others -- and not the foot and a-half that's on the ground in parts of Kansas.

Snow began falling in Detroit just in time for the morning rush, turning streets and freeways into a mess. In Chicago, the city's large fleet of snowplows salted and cleared the streets of three inches of snow, as commuters made their way to work.

About 270 flights in and out of Chicago's two airports were canceled this morning, and arrival delays of up to 90 minutes were reported.

Airports in Kansas City and St. Louis have reopened, but there were numerous cancellations and delays at both.
