Oregon's Employment Department says the number of unemployment insurance claims rose from about 800 on Sunday (March 16) to nearly 18,500 on Tuesday (March 18).

"Overnight, we did some maintenance for our online claim system," said Gail Krumenauer, interim communications director for the Oregon Employment Department. "And today [Wednesday] so far it is working much faster and more effectively for people who are trying to get through online.
