this bbc news article is about tropical storm debby and its impact on floridians. the thing i thought was funny was the picture of the state, with a bunch of cities labeled. miami is the southernmost of the cities. but why would they possibly choose those cities shown on the map?? mexico beach? cedar key? i went to school at fsu, something like an hour from where each of those places seem to be, but i haven’t heard of either. englewood, instead of tampa or orlando? there are around 4 million people living around tampa bay, and i just looked up englewood and there are 10,000. did they just pick arbitrary places?
if you’re not from florida this probably means nothing to you.
