KOAM MORNING NEWS TO KNOW 1-2

Updated:

CHEROKEE COUNTY FIRE

  • Fire departments from Columbus, Weir, and Scammon responded to a fire near Columbus, Kansas just before 4pm Monday afternoon.  No word on what led to the grass fire around Center Star and Northeast 30th Road.  The owner says about ten acres burned.  No one was injured, and no livestock or structures were threatened.

FLU FIGHT

  • A "Via Christi Hospital" ER doctor says people are getting hit harder with the flu this year than last year.  Doctors say young kids, the elderly and people with COPD and asthma are more at risk for flu complications.  And to help them, you should help yourself.  First, wash your hands well.  And if you do get sick, health officials say don't go out in public and spread the virus. 

COMPUTER GLITCH

  • An apparent computer glitch created big headaches for some air travelers on New Year's Day.  For two hours last night, the customs and border protection's passport processing system was down nationwide.  That meant all passports had to be checked manually, leading to long lines of passengers in Miami and at other international airports around the country.

TRUMP IN D.C.

  • After spending the holidays in sunny Palm Beach, Florida, President Trump returned to the White House last night.  Today, Mister Trump is scheduled to have lunch with Vice President Mike Pence, as the White House prioritizes its legislative agenda for 2018.
