All over the map…

Just a head’s up that whoever made the graphic regarding the tornado and storm deaths needs to go back to geography class. The picture incorrectly points to North Carolina and calls it Kentucky. You should take another look at Alabama and Mississippi’s labels as well.

Sigh. Identifying five states and getting three of them wrong is not a great batting average. We corrected: GBU Editor

Also, “Mississippi” (really Alabama) is highlighted, but you don’t say how many people were killed there. Since you bothered to mention the number in states where only 1 person was killed, it seems odd you wouldn’t mention however many were killed there.

And if no one was, then was why it highlighted, and why didn’t you tell us?

Not the finest hour for the graphics team, unfortunately.
