Kansas City wasn't ready for pothole season

Kansas City received more than 600 pothole reports after the cold snap cut up roads. Crews are trying to patch them up quickly, but the craters are already taking out tires and suspensions. Plus: Why a Kansas surgeon is helping wounded soldiers in Ukraine.

Kansas City drivers dread pothole season every spring, but it came early this year after area roads thawed out from a bitter cold streak. KCUR's Jodi Fortino shares details about the city's plan with Steve Kraske on Up To Date.

Ukrainian-Americans in Kansas are worried about whether the U.S. will send Ukraine more military aid. That includes Wichita plastic surgeon Nataliya Biskup, who left Ukraine as a child. She recently returned to operate on soldiers injured in battle, and spoke with Rose Conlon of the Kansas News Service about the trip.
