Spring storm brings more snow to Plains

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- More snow was falling Sunday as part of a powerful storm blowing through Oklahoma and the southern Plains on the first weekend of spring.

The National Weather Service reported moderate to heavy snow across northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas, with 8 to 12 inches in some places. The snow and rain was expected to end later Sunday.

Authorities have attributed at least four deaths in four states to the weather. Police in Arlington, Texas, said ice on an interstate caused an accident Sunday involving five vehicles and two 18-wheelers. One of the 18-wheelers fell on another vehicle, killing one person.

No injuries reported in emergency landing

CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago officials say no one was injured in an emergency landing at O'Hare International Airport.

Karen Pride, spokeswoman for the Chicago Department of Aviation said, "a pressurization problem" prompted American Airlines Flight 2363 to land at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

She had no further details.

The airline's Web site says the flight had taken off from O'Hare and was headed to the Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Colorado. It arrived at its destination after 1 p.m. -- about two hours later than scheduled.

Larry Langford, Chicago Fire Department spokesman, said the Boeing 737 carried 119 people.
