ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis-area bank chain says a security breach has exposed personal information of more than 100 customers.
Midwest BankCentre says on its website that personal information from 109 loan applications were exposed. The bank learned of the breach late Monday. The Secret Service and the FBI are investigating.
Midwest BankCentre operates seven branches. The bank is contacting affected customers and offering free identity theft protection.
The bank says it has hired forensics investigators to find the source of the breach.
Schnucks Markets Inc. of suburban St. Louis is also dealing with fallout from a security breach. In that case, customer credit cards and debit cards were billed with fraudulent charges.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Residents in Ventura County, Calif., who were forced to flee ahead of a wind-driven wildfire are being allowed to return home this morning.
Residents in some 80 homes had to evacuate when a windy storm swept through the state and fanned flames. Two homes were destroyed.
The same storm system is threatening to leave up to 20 inches of snow in Colorado's mountains and up to 11 inches in the Denver area.
In Arizona, gusty winds created a dusty haze and closed 34 miles of Interstate 40 in the northern part of the state for several hours. And at least four people were injured in a pileup involving two semi-trucks.
LONDON (AP) - The British government says former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's funeral will be held April 17.
Today undertakers removed the ex-leader's body from London's Ritz Hotel, where she died Monday, amid preparations for a ceremonial funeral with full military honors.
A van carrying Thatcher's casket left the hotel for an undisclosed location.
Officials say Thatcher's funeral will be held with full military honors at St. Paul's Cathedral. It is not technically a state funeral, which requires a vote in Parliament, but is the same level of honor given Princess Diana and the Queen Mother Elizabeth.
Thatcher's coffin will lie overnight at the Houses of Parliament before the funeral, and then travel on a horse-drawn gun carriage to the cathedral along a route lined by military personnel.
