Oklahoman construction workers, including contractors, are increasingly moving into homes with the help of construction equipment.
In some cases, workers are now using crane trucks to get into homes, a move that has raised concerns among local and state lawmakers.
Oklahoms first building boom boom In 2011, construction booms and a boom in the construction industry fueled the Oklahomas first building booms, which boosted the number of construction jobs in the state by 25 percent, according to a 2015 report from the National Association of Home Builders.
But in 2017, the boom ended as construction companies began moving their work overseas.
The boom ended in 2018 as Oklahoma’s economy suffered as the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and Tulsa metro areas suffered the worst disasters in recent memory.
In 2018, the Okla.
reported that construction was down 9 percent in the past year.
The state’s overall jobless rate rose to 9.9 percent from 8.8 percent in 2017.
Okla., which has the fourth-highest unemployment rate in the country, has also experienced a resurgence in earthquakes.
Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett and the City Council passed a resolution in 2018 asking the federal government to do more to help cities prepare for earthquakes, according the Oklatimes.
Oklahoma City has seen nearly 60 earthquakes since the start of 2017, but most of those have occurred since the beginning of 2020.
The Oklahoma City area has also seen an increase in house fires in recent years.
The city has reported more than 2,000 house fires since the first fire in May of 2018, according KOCO.
The fire has damaged or destroyed more than 1,600 structures, and officials estimate the fire is costing $7 million a day.
Oklantic is also seeing a resurgence of house fires.
In 2019, the city had just more than 100 fire incidents, the KOCI reported.
In 2017, it had more than 400.
A fire destroyed the home of a woman’s boyfriend in 2018.
In May 2018, a fire damaged the home in the same town, the Oklahoma Daily reported.
The man, a family member of the homeowner, was injured in the fire and died at a hospital.
The woman who lived there, who lived alone, was not injured.
