property damage is in northern virginia. >> that's where most of the outages are. it's been a rough day for residents. >> reporter: the winds are still kicking up. it's tough to even stand in this one spot. all morning traffic diverted, forced to turn around because this street here, great falls street still closed as crews still work to fix the downed power lines there. i just checked in with virginia dominion power. as the winds kick up, they tell me their power outage numbers increase. on a cold, windy morning, riding a bike might seem like an odd way to get around. >> last night all the power went out. kids were crying. it was fun. >> you're making the best out of this, huh? >> why not? it's sunny now. can't complain. >> reporter: in this neighborhood, downed trees, damaged power lines and a

so it's going to be a calmer night for us? >> thankfully, thankfully. because it was hard to drive in it even after the winds did settle down even if you drive a substantial vehicle you're kind of rocking and rolling. glad i wasn't driving the '71 bus i used to have. that thing was like driving a billboard. things have dramatically improved. here's a live look at our tower camera. it's up there about 200 feet. it's kind of bouncing around a little bit in the wind, but it has greatly diminished. there's capitol basking in afternoon sunshine. the sunshine will be with us the rest of the afternoon. sunset is coming up in about an hour at 5:34. at reagan national it did peak with gusts at 60 miles an hour. we had those strongest gusts late last night when the wall of wind came through a

any chances. you're going to hear from a lawyer about what immigrants here in our area should do. also most of us have experienced heartburn before, but what if it's more than that. doreen gent genzler takes a loo some studies to find out if it could be much more serious than you thought. also, if someone hits your car, your auto insurance shouldn't go up, right? apparently that is not the case. our consumer reporter susan hogan is working for you to tell you about that. since mgm national harbor opened, it has primarily hosted music and comedy shows. now it's hosting boxing matches. the other story we're focusing on, tax week here on nbc 4. >> the deadline will be here before you know it. all this week susan hogan is prepping you with what you need k
returns. >> the last thing you want to do is over pay your taxes. but you might be shelling out more than you need and not even know about it. here are four of the most over looked tax deductions. do you volunteer for an organization or charity? you can't deduct the value of your time, but you sure can deduct out-of-pocket expenses such as gas costs or ingredients for food you prepared for a nonprofit. did you look for a job in 2016? as long as your job hunting is in the same profession and you itemize, you can deduct transportation, food and lodging expenses, cost of printing resumes and even site subscriptions such asling linke. also baggage fees, this deduction applies to people self-employed and traveling on business. apply those baggage f
deductible travel expenses. one last deduction often over looked, student loan interest paid by mom and dad as long as the child is no longer claimed as a dependent, the student can deduct up to $2500 of student loan interest. you don't even have to itemize to take advantage of this deduction. no matter what you deduction, remember you need to have receipts and records on hand. >> even if you pay someone to do your taxes, records are key. your accountant or your software program is only as good as what you put into it. so even if you know all the deductions, if you don't have records to back them up, they're not going to help you out. for millions of people winter is starting to take a toll. the back breaking work that could be affecting a lot of people's health.

attacks right after a major snowstorm. canadian researchers made the connection while comparing hospital admissions numbers with weather data. they think shoveling is to blame. you know, moving all that snow is definitely hard on the heart. >> we haven't had to do a lot of it in our area this winter. but shove shoveling know is becoming a routine for millions to the north of us. >> after last week's storm, they got hit with another round yesterday. how all that work to clear the snow has taken its toll. >> it's going to be really really cold, so i decided to get out real early. >> reporter: yvette says the trick to cleaning up the snow is to take it one heave at a time. >> it's really heavy and you've got to be careful with your back. make sure you bend, make sure you go all the way down and just push it over. >> reporter: she says this may be the last year she shovels. >> i decided to buy a snow
