I am not sure I understand : As long as the wages here were earned you can file for UI benefits.

They can have been earned in another state.It is not a requirement they have been earned in Florida.If they were earned in Oklahoma these will count.They look at W-2 wages earned anywhere in the US.
Your employment in Oklahoma and wages may qualify you for UI benefits if you are otherwise eligible.
You would want to file as soon as possible to obtain the benefits here.

I wish you good luck with benefits and seeking new employment.
