After a winter storm caused many delays for travelers in the Midwest, including travelers going through Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International, airports seem to be doing much better on Christmas Eve.

Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport had no cancelations or delays to report on any of its arriving or departing flights Monday morning. Some travelers were left stranded overnight after a storm rolled through the area.

The storm, part of a system that began in the Rockies earlier in the week, led airlines to cancel more than 1,000 flights and caused whiteout conditions, leaving roads dangerous to drive on. It was blamed for deaths in at least five states, with parts of Iowa and Wisconsin hit with more than a foot of snow.

Most of the canceled flights were in Chicago, where aviation officials said more than 350 flights were called off at O'Hare International Airport and more than 150 at Midway International Airport.
