ST. CLOUD - Flights from St. Cloud to Chicago are being impacted by recent damage to a Chicago-area control center.

The Federal Aviation Administration says it could take up to two weeks to fully reopen a damaged Chicago control center that's impacted flights across the nation. An employee started a fire at the control center on Friday that led to cancellations at O'Hare and Midway Airports.

Flights from St. Cloud and Minneapolis-St. Paul have been shuffled and delayed over the last few days. St. Cloud airport director Bill Towle says Chicago flights are now running at a reduced capacity.

The FAA says that they hope to have the Chicago control center at full service by October 13th. Towle says that the airport damage has had a ripple-effect on regional airports. A Friday afternoon flight from St. Cloud had to be delayed and numerous MSP flights have been cancelled.

Around 600 flights were canceled at airports on Sunday.

If you've booked a flight from St. Cloud to Chicago, you should check the status of your flight on the United Airlines or St. Cloud Airport websites.
