in the d.c. area, cars got submerged in flood water. >> when the water is this high, it's scary because you don't know what is going to happen. >> reporter: powerful winds also caused thousands of power outages in the northeast. those windy conditions are expected to stick around today before the storm moves out to sea. just to show you how wicked the weather was yesterday. at least 16 tornadoes were reported along the east coast. as the storm continues to push out to sea, places like d.c. and new york could get a bit of a warm-up with temperatures in the 50s today. >> that would be a welcome relief. don champion at new york's laguardia airport, thanks a lot, don. winter weather hammered indiana and illinois. a state police reported over 200 crashes. more than a thousand flights were cancelled at chicago's main airports. winter storm warnings remain in effect for much of the great lakes region. tonight could be the last chance for the republican

to believe that there is a bombshell in donald trump's taxes. i think there is something there. either he is not anywhere near as wealthy as he says he is or he hasn't been paying the kind of taxes we would expect him to pay, or perhaps he hasn't been giving money to the vets or to the disabled. >> reporter: trump called romney a fool on twitter. but ended up talking about his taxes in an interview with cnn's anderson cooper. >> tax returns are very complicated. i have many, many companies. i have, you know, tremendously, i have a very complex system of taxes. and, frankly, i get ordered every single year. >> reporter: trump skipped the televised town hall on fox news but stopping his ascent to the nomination was a big topic among the remaining candidates. their common theme, most republicans still don't support trump. >> we are not going to allow the conservative movement to be defined by a nominee who isn't a conservative. >> we are probably going to see donald trump continue to win, but it's a matter of accumulating delegates and it's continuing to put one foot in front of the other.
>> with fewer candidates, i think maybe there's a possibility -- i'm not sure it's going to happen, but a possibility people may actually start getting interested in the real solutions. >> the only campaign that can beat donald and the only campaign that has beaten donald is our campaign. >> super tuesday is even bigger for the democrats. 865 delegates will be on the line. but, first, is this saturday's south carolina primary. the latest poll shows clinton with a commanding lead. a large delegate count on super tuesday could give her an insurmountable lead. bernie sanders campaigned in oklahoma yesterday where 42 delegates are up for grabs. a twist in the growing political battle over replacing antonin scalia on the supreme court. cbs news has confirmed the white house is considering nominating the republican governor for nevada, brian sandoval. he is a moderate former federal judge appointed by george w.
