CRANSTON, R.I. (WLNE) – The Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training announced Saturday that the Teleserve system that provides telephone and internet service to unemployment insurance claims is back online after being temporarily disabled by rainwater Friday.

The DLT explained that rainwater from Friday night’s storm seeped into the department’s data center at 1511 Pontiac Avenue in Cranston, causing the computer system to power down.

The DLT, together with the state’s Department of Administration worked Saturday to assess the issue and bring power back to the system.
