This morning, Haitians gathered at what remains1 of Notre Damn Cathedral to celebrate mash2 on this somber3 occasion. One year has now passed since the earth shook Port-au Prince. The earthquake killed closed to a quater million people. In October, disaster struck again in the form of a deadly epidemic4 of cholera5. The death toll6 now more than 3600 people dead and climbing.

One year, nothing has changed here, he says, many people are suffering, and we don't know why.

We still have 6 patients in the hospital. One patient stays or remains in a critical fashion, two are serious and three are in a fair condition. The update on the congresswoman at this time period is that it's going as anticiptated,again at this time period things can go very slowly and the progress can occur very rapidally at some particular time,and actually can also go in a negative fashion, the downward the way as well. And I'm happy to state that none of  the downward events have occured at this time which is, you know, exactly what kind of want to happen. It's just amazing how the people of this nation here are coming together on this tragedy. The amount of good wishes that coming across is just absolutely stunning7.

The latest weather storm to bury the northeast is getting out of there as fast as it blew in, in the meantime though, it is whiteout Wednesday. A foot or more of new snow in New York City, and through much of New England plus winds as high as 80 miles an hour, air travel once again is at a virtual standstill.The bigger airports are open, but so many people are not flying.

Today's storm in the northeast is a bigger,badder version of what we had in the south on Sunday and into Monday.The memories of that are still fresh because most of the snow and ice is still all over the place in the  south. Of the 50 states have some snow on the ground, somewhere this week, Florida being the lone8 exception.Here's another way to look at it. The national weather service says 71% of the United States is covered by snow.

More than 40,000 houses are expected to flood with up to 100,000 homes without power.Over 2000 Brisbane streets will sink below the murky9 waters while around 3,000 businesses are facing financial ruin.

It's horrible, that's my whole life, but we are alive, I've got my kids.

The Goodwill10 Bridge on verge11 of collapsing12 into the surging waters.Salvage13 missions now have begun to prevent further scenes like this one.Major infrastructure14 is also under threat, including the city's port as residents prepare the best they can, the city's biggest dam continues to fill, Wivanhoe currently sits around 190 percent of capacity .But for now ,it's stable. A piece of good news on a very bad day
