Chicago can’t seem to catch a break lately.
Flights in Chicago were grounded Monday evening after further complications resulting from the Aurora radar center fires.
Delays struck hard during Monday’s evening rush hour at both airports — O’Hare International and Midway — because of a telephone outage at an Indianapolis air traffic control site, the Federal Aviation Administration said, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The Indianapolis telephones are backup lines of communication and were tapped because of a fire at the radar center in Aurora on Sept. 26. The Aurora facility is still inoperative because of that fire, which was set intentionally, the Chicago Tribune reported.
