We'll get more on that. From komo's sue Romero on the state employment security department website page called unemployment benefits related to partial federal shutdown. Let's workers here know that applications for unemployment are taken either online or over the phone. Welcome to the Washington unemployment claims editor and automated claims line the first question in Q and A am I eligible for unemployment the answer on the website is quote in general, if you're. Unemployed through no fault of your own.

See romero? Komo news all the shutdown has locked out visitors to mount rainier national park. We've told you yesterday was the first full day the main gate was closed. Komo's Keith Eldridge says it's affecting more than just workers and visitors soon he and Neil Carlson had hoped to check out mount rainier national park, but didn't even get out of the car when they saw the main gate at the entrance closed caused by the federal government shutdown kind of a disappointment. I mean, we'd like to go on some hiking trails and kind of see the area and the National Park Service says they're serious about this gate. They don't even want you walking in because they say would be just too dangerous. The park service says with snow on the roadways and more to come don't workers to keep it clear. It's just too risky. To allow anyone in or you're hoping to come out to the park today and take some photographs trying to get up into the snow. A little bit Ken grant was hoping to get into the park. But instead they have to turn around that's a little disheartening. I mean, I know that they're trying to find the financial stuff and trying to get things worked out, but Ciller national parks. We like to come up here. And enjoy it year round park employees are on hold park. Visitors are out of luck. And the tourist businesses along the route to the park are out those tourist dollars that now won't be coming in.
