  • Hurrican Harvey

Hurricane Harvey, downgraded to a tropical storm Saturday afternoon, continued having an effect on travel across the country Saturday evening, including at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. According to a flight tracker, all three flights landed safely.

The airport system's website says Bush Intercontinental Airport is 23 miles north of downtown Houston and provides service via 29 passenger airlines. The FAA expects that airport might reopen noon Monday.

People walk through water to a staging area to evacuate from flood waters from Hurricane Harvey in Dickinson, Texas August 27, 2017. The Houston Airports advises passengers to stay in touch with their air carriers for the most accurate information regarding specific flight status. Hobby airport is expected to remain closed until at least Wednesday, according to the FAA. "Some of the roads to other highways were closed off because the roads were flooded", she said.

United cancelled about 90% of their schedule by midday Sunday, with the decision to cancel all flights coming at midday.

Southwest did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.

Both major Houston airports have been temporarily shut down.

The statement said: 'Our Hearts are with South Texas, our Southwest Family, and everyone affected by the storm. "Daily, year-round nonstop service to San Jose and Silicon Valley will provide a substantial benefit to our regional economy and will dramatically advance business recruitment, retention and expansion opportunities in our most important employment sectors".

It is unclear how many people were or are still stranded in the airport.

Customers flying to any airport in the region during the next few days should check ahead on the status of their flights.

Flights from Destin-Fort Walton Beach to Houston are also cancelled.

Even nationwide, Harvey could create sporadic disruptions.
