Phones down at state unemployment office

Telephone troubles caused by last weekend's flooding may affect Illinois residents who are collecting unemployment.

People have to certify for benefits before they can collect a payment. Many people do that by phone. But the flooding disrupted phone service at the Illinois Department of Employment Security.

Officials are urging people to go online to certify: www.ides.state.il.us.
