A dozen Houston students are among those experiencing the 2016 blizzard.

A group from Incarnate Word Academy was on a field trip to Washington, D.C when storm Jonas began its wrath.

The students, who traveled up east to learn about the democratic process, were set to leave the nations capital on Friday, but won't be back until Tuesday because of flight cancellations.

Elsewhere, critical conditions still exist after the monster snow storm that killed at at least 19. Morning tides brought flooding to the Jersey shore.

In New York, the travel ban is lifted and they're beginning to dig their way out from the second biggest storm in the city's history, which dumped at least 25-inches of snow in Central Park.

In Virginia, members of the national guard helped those in need of transportation.

No doubt it will take some time for the east coast to plow its way through the damage from this wicked weather.
