WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama administration says a new technical problem is preventing last-minute users from signing up on the government's health insurance website. The new problem comes as traffic is surging on deadline day.

Health and Human Services spokesman Aaron Albright says technicians have identified an issue affecting consumers who are trying to create new accounts.

As a result, new users will not be able to access the system for the time-being. Technicians are working to fix the problem.

People with existing accounts can continue to work on their applications.

Albright said more than 100,000 people are using the system at the same time.
