Kayla's Morning Kickstart

Weather Warnings

Last week's weather made for a tough travel week, and things aren't getting easier for many parts of the country. According to CNN, icy conditions caused a plane to slip off the runway upon landing at Buffalo Niagara International Airport yesterday. Severe fog and storms were blamed for a 25-vehicle pileup in Maryland. As of this morning, more than 7,500 flights have been delayed within the past day, and delays will continue today.

Impeachment Investigation

The House Judiciary Committee will hold its first impeachment hearing Wednesday, but President Trump and his attorneys will not attend. The White House made a statement last night saying they weren't given enough information about who will be there and can't be sure the President will be given a "fair process." Key players like former national security adviser John Bolton and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney have refused to testify. The House Intelligence Committee now kicks off the sprint to get the vote on the books by Christmas.

London Bridge

According to CNN, London has had a weekend to process Friday's stabbing attack that ended with two people dead, three others injured and a city on edge. The suspect, Usman Khan, was shot and killed by police after attacking a crowd of people gathered on London Bridge. Khan had a history of terrorist activity, which raises the question of what to do with convicted terrorists after they serve their sentences.

Measles Outbreak

A measles outbreak in Samoa has killed 50 children as authorities race to vaccinate the entire population. The government of the South Pacific nation said today that another five children have died as the epidemic spreads. Most of the people who have died are babies and young kids, but one was an adults and two were teens. Samoa declared a state of emergency last month and mandated that all 200,000 people on the island get vaccinated.
