(RNN) - Two people won the $636 million Mega Millions jackpot this week.

It was one of the largest jackpots in the game's history. One winning ticket came from a store in San Jose, CA, while the other was from the Atlanta area.

A theater ceiling collapsed during a performance in London on Thursday. More than 75 were injured at the Apollo Theatre.

Target, the nation's No. 2 merchandise retailer, reported that about 40 million credit and debit card accounts for in-store shoppers were compromised between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15. Officials urge shoppers to keep careful track of charges and report any fraudulent charges to their credit card company or bank immediately.
