UNDATED (AP) -- Some flights have been canceled at Oklahoma's two largest airports, but officials report little disruption to air traffic because of a winter storm.

Will Rogers World Airport spokeswoman Karen Carney says American Airlines has canceled five flights to the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, where freezing rain and sleet are falling. Carney says Southwest Airlines hadn't canceled or delayed any flights out of Love Field as of Wednesday afternoon.

She says some of the aircraft are being de-iced but that's pretty common and may only delay flights by five or 10 minutes.

Tulsa International Airport Marketing Director Mary Smith says American Airlines has delayed three flights from Tulsa into the Dallas area, but Southwest Airlines flights haven't been impacted yet.
