MILWAUKEE - As a storm with expected high winds headed towards the Milwaukee area, pilots and officials at Mitchell International Airport began to take precautions.

Pilots put their small planes into hangars to keep away from the wind.

O'Hare Airport in Chicago had decided not to allow incoming flights at about 6:55 a.m., so that would affect flights at Mitchell and many other airports around the U.S. and world.

As of 6:40 a.m. Tuesday, no flights had been canceled, but airport officials say that people should call their airlines before arriving at the airport to check in or pick up loved ones.
