One Chicago woman says she "thought it was just media hype."

The storm that's brought a blast of wet snow to the city appears to be living up to the advance warnings. It's expected to dump more snow than Chicago has seen since the 2011 blizzard.

It's barreling through Illinois on its way toward the nation's capital, where it is expected to arrive late tonight.

In western Wisconsin this morning, a semi-trailer slid off a snow-covered interstate and into a river, killing one person. Authorities have been searching for a second person believed to have been a passenger.

Airlines canceled more than 1,100 flights at Chicago airports Tuesday. Airlines along the storm's projected path are also cutting flights -- including hundreds at Dulles and Reagan National airports in the Washington area.

In Chicago, officials have been working to keep Lake Shore Drive safe. A blizzard in February of 2011 shut down the lakefront highway at rush hour, stranding hundreds of cars and buses and trapping passengers overnight.
