Pre-loaded debit cards from state target of hackers - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Pre-loaded debit cards from state target of hackers

Good Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*Hackers may have your information if you receive a pre-loaded debit card from the state.  JP Morgan Chase says there has been a security breach, exposing the personal information of some 13,000 cardholders.  Find out what you can do if you think your information is at risk.

*New this morning: one person is in the hospital, another taken away in handcuffs after a crash on Ryan Street at Sallier around 3:00 this morning.  We have video of the aftermath and will tell you what we know so far.

*Lake Charles city officials are considering a joint study with the state to identify how to proceed with the Enterprise Boulevard extension project.  We'll tell you how much that would cost and why they're looking to get more insight on this project now.

*The holiday season is supposed to be "the most wonderful time of the year."  But for those who have lost a loved one, Christmas can be very blue - lasting into the start of a new year.  In this morning's Healthcast, I'll talk to a Lake Charles woman that is still finding joy in the holiday season after losing her husband and mother.

*It's been nearly a year since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 20 students and six faculty members dead.  After a long, emotional court battle, 911 calls from the horrific day are released.  We will not air the audio out of respect to those impacted, but will tell you what we've learned about the moments the gunman entered the school.

*In our McNeese Spotlight this morning, we'll have a live interview with Libby Looney with the theatre department talking about upcoming performances of "The Nutcracker."

Make it a Sunrise day!
