CHICAGO — Sunday night’s rain caused some flight cancellations at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, and forced a lot of people to spend an unscheduled night on cots in the concourses.

To make matters worse, the roofs over Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 sprung leaks, and yellow buckets were set out to catch the dripping.

About 800 people used the cots at o’hare, and another 200 at Midway Airport; many others chose to stretch out on seats and benches, or simply sleep on the floor.

Passengers are being rebooked on other flights today.
