New jobless claims are down a second straight week in Oklahoma.

Last week, 40,297 people filed for unemployment, a 26% drop from 54,481 the week before.

Almost 225,000 Oklahomans have now lost their jobs over the past five weeks, with a single-week record of more than 60,000 the week ending April 4.
