Michaels: All Charlotte area stores affected by data breach

Channel 9 has discovered that every Michaels store in and around the Charlotte area was affected by the latest data breach.

The company says three million customers nationwide are involved, saying their credit and debit card numbers were stolen.

Names and personal identification numbers and addresses were not affected.

The biggest impact is in the Charlotte area, as hackers stole from all ten local stores.

Michaels says the incident is under control and the malware no longer exists in its systems.

The company says it has received only a few reports of fraudulent activity and are offering customers free credit monitoring for a year.

Check out the complete list of affected stores and dates of exposure here.

You won't believe what America's funniest city is


That’s right, the home of the Cubs, Da Bears, and the place where Second City was born is at the top of the charts.

The criterion was put together by the University of Colorado. Let’s be honest: Since the legalization of marijuana, they probably laugh at anything, but stick with me and we’ll see how they came to the conclusion.

The school's Humor Research Lab developed a formula that considered the following:

  • number of famous comedians born there
  • number of comedy clubs and comedy radio stations
  • number of "funny tweeters" living there
  • ratings of local audiences by traveling comedians
  • frequency of visits to comedy websites and comedy-related Web searches by residents

"We found humor often has a local flavor," lead researcher Peter McGraw told The Chicago Tribune.

The work says it’s that local flavor that leads those who live in the Windy City to poke fun at themselves.

"The jokes that Chicagoans do tend to tell often feature deadpan and quick-witted humor, much of it directed at the foibles and frustrations of living in Chicago," the study states.

"They prefer to mine observational humor from the situations in which they find themselves. Such remarks seem to fit with the city’s professional comedy scene, since the city is known as a mecca for improv and stand-up."

Finishing out the top five were Boston; Atlanta; Washington, D.C.; and Portland.
