Dangerous Levels of Heat, Humidity Return to St. Louis Area
A zone of high pressure is forecast to build at most levels of the atmosphere, which will gradually tone down the number of showers and thunderstorms and reduce cloud cover. Graphic courtesy AccuWeather.com
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), August 19, 2014 - The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for the metropolitan St. Louis area, beginning Wednesday and continuing through the weekend with temperatures in the mid 90s and index values up to 106 degress.
As the summer has been relatively cool, these summertime levels of heat and humidity will feel especially oppressive and potentially dangerous. The greatest impact will be felt in the urban heat island of the St. Louis metro area.
The likely combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will lead to an increased risk of heat-related stress and illness. The very young and elderly, those without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
Heat building over the South Central states will reach into parts of southern Atlantic Seaboard during the last couple of weeks of August.
According to AccuWeather.com a zone of high pressure is forecast to build at most levels of the atmosphere, which will gradually tone down the number of showers and thunderstorms and reduce cloud cover.
Schnucks Reaches Settlement on Credit Card Breach
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), August 17, 2014 - A notification program is underway, as approved by the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, State of Missouri, to alert customers of Schnuck Markets, Inc. ("Schnucks") that a Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about a security breach that occurred between December 9, 2012 and March 30, 2013.
On March 30, 2013, Schnucks announced that its computer systems had been compromised by an individual or group of individuals who had planted a malicious computer code on its systems (the "Security Incident").
The Security Incident involved the insertion of malicious computer code that targeted data in the magnetic stripe of credit and debit cards swiped at 79 Schnucks stores. A list of the 79 stores is available at www.SchnucksCardClaims.com.
The lawsuit claims that Schnucks was responsible for the Security Incident because Schnucks did not take appropriate care to protect its payment card systems from hacking. Schnucks denies all of the claims and says it did not do anything wrong. The case is known as McGann, et al. v. Schnuck Markets, Inc., Case No. 1322-CC00800, Division 2.
The Settlement Class includes all individuals who used a credit or debit card at a Schnucks store between December 9, 2012 and March 30, 2013.
The Settlement provides three types of payments to people who submit valid claims.
Reimbursement of up to $200 for out-of-pocket expenses and documented lost time that resulted from the Security Incident. This payment type provides reimbursement related to 14 categories of out-of-pocket expenses and lost time including unreimbursed bank fees, card reissuance fees, overdraft fees, postage and credit reports. The Detailed Notice available at the website has the complete list of categories.
$10 for each credit or debit card that had fraudulent charges as a result of the Security Incident, even though those charges were reversed or credited back to the cardholder's account.
Reimbursement of up to $10,000 for extraordinary unreimbursed monetary losses which were more likely than not caused by the Security Incident.
Depending on the number of valid claims, some payments may be reduced.
Notices will be emailed or mailed to known potential Class Members, and Notices are scheduled to appear via local newspapers and radio programming within the affected Schnuck Market areas leading up to a hearing on January 13, 2015, when the Court will consider whether to grant final approval of the Settlement.
