EPJ Reports:

A former Navy man, early this morning, cut radar feeds and set them on fire at a suburban Chicago air traffic control center. The action brought two of the nation's busiest airports, O'Hare and Midway airports, to a halt.

The veteran was a contract employee. He was found with multiple self-inflicted knife wounds and burns at the center. According to ABC News Chicago,  the man had routine access to the facility and intimate knowledge of radar. He was in the Navy from 1996 to 2000.

By late afternoon, nearly 1,800 flights in and out of Chicago alone had been canceled. A few flights began taking off and landing again around midday, after a nearly five-hour gap. The planes were moving at a much-reduced pace, officials said, and no one could be sure when full service would resume.

Southwest -- the nation's largest discounter -- decided to cancel its entire schedule Friday at both Chicago Midway and Milwaukee.
