Photos of the week: 1/22 - 1/29



As we reach the end of the month, take some time to look back at this past week's biggest stories through the photos that captivated us all. Winter Storm Jonas created dramatic scenes up and down the East Coast, including citizens skiing down streets in Washington, DC and building snowmen in Times Square. We also saw the increasing severity of the current Zika outbreak in the Americas, as well as continued preparation for the Iowa Caucuses.
