Much of the East Coast is buried under snow tonight. From North Carolina to  Massachusetts, Wednesday's blizzard conditions are a reminder of winter's wrath.

New snowfall records have been set this winter in the Washington-area, along with Baltimore, Maryland and Wilmington, Delaware.

In the nation's capital 40 inches of snow has fallen in the past few days from two storm systems. There are reports of at least 22 roof collapses in the area from the weight of the snow.

The federal government was shutdown for a third day.

Farther north, Philadelphia could get 20 inches of snow from this latest storm. Interstates 76, 476, 676 and 176 around the city are only open for emergency vehicles.

Here in New York, the city is under a blizzard warning until 6 a.m. Thursday. At least a foot of snow is expected.

The three area airports are open, but not many planes are landing or taking off.

Up in Boston, up to 10 inches of snow is predicted to fall.

We'll have live reports on the weather conditions tonight on 360°.

We also continue to follow the recovery efforts in Haiti.

Doctor Sanjay Gupta is tracking the medical crisis. He's tracking how U.S. hospitals are helping Haiti's quake victims.

This may surprise you. The U.S. hospitals that take the patients are getting reimbursed at 110% of Medicare. You may be wondering why 110%, and not 100%. Dr. Gupta has the details.

Join us for these stories and much more starting at 10 p.m. ET.

    Here in Virginia is 2 feet, even 3 feet tall.. We have a back to back winter storm and gusty wind rushing in and power outage. What can you do? I see tired faces of crews that have been working for over a week non-stop plowing the snow...They've been super through all these and people have been coming together and helping each other. No matter what, compare to all other catasthropes, I really enjoy this historic snowstorm!

    Yes, the snow is still falling and the wind is howling! And of all days, the Direct tv has no satelite signal. Funny, this did not happen over the weekend when it snowed. So, here I sit on my computer catching up on series I have missed. Hopefully, something will happen tomorrow and I will get a signal. However, I am grateful that we do have power and I pray for all those who don't!

    If we loose $100m when the government in DC is closed down, what do you estimate we loose when everyone is working-$150 million?

    40 inches of snow – the most I have ever seen at one time was in the 1993 spring blizzard in the SE US – we got 24 inches from that one. Hope the homeless are in shelters during this and that there are minimal injuries and death from the storm. Congress having 3 days off might actually be a good thing – I haven't noticed the wheels of government screeching to a halt yet. Looking forward to the broadcast to get updated on all the weather events and seeing more on Haiti.
