We have many ORD delayed/cancelled flights today to PHX mostly due to weather in ORD. Appolo was saying something about a sink hole in on of the runways is also causing delays? Anyone hear about this?

ATCSCC put out a groundstop for ORD due to it at 2120z, and 20-30 minutes later they put out a ground delay program for ORD citing low ceilings as the driver...

I doubt it was a sinkhole, just a hole/crack in the pavement with some loose pieces. (There was also one on 13C at MDW last week). They usually do a temporary patch job to get things running again, and clean-up the loose pieces (FOD hazard), and do the permanent repairs during the overnight hours.
