Hurricane Harvey Shocker. Mississippi Is Destroyed and Alabama Will Never Be the Same

The Seattle Times has since apologized but a couple of questions come to mind.

That map had to have been created at the Seattle Times because, and you can check me out on this if you doubt me, there are no stock maps that place Alabama next to Louisiana. As it seems like the map was created for the purpose of this story–presumably as some kind of ‘meta’ inside joke–does the newspaper even care?
