      COLUMBIA (WACH) -A power outage at the South Carolina Department of Unemployment and Workforce caused havoc for claimants trying to file their weekly claim online.

      DEW spokesperson Adrienne Fairwell said the agency's servers had to be repaired Monday after a power outage caused them to fail Monday, when many claimants have to file their weekly reports about their job search so they'll keep recieving benefits.

      Fairwell reminds those reporting claims they can do so via DEW's toll-free number at 1-866-831-1724.
