IN LAST WEEK’S HINT, I showed the story above and asked “What’s missing?” I gave no hints, betting that good journalists likes yourselves would figure it out. You did.
The story from The Herald, our newspaper here in Rock Hill, SC, mentioned a map from the City of Rock Hill “showing flood-prone areas, not just in the city but county-wide.”
Well…where do I find this map? Where’s the link?
As I mentioned last week, it boggles the mind. No one thought of including a way to get readers to the map.
Sometimes, I said, it’s about what’s not there.
Following are your responses to my challenge: “…let me know what you’re not seeing in this package.”
From Sandy Dodson: The map.
From Randy Keck: I’m not seeing any photos.
From Terry Pugh: A map.
From Paul Coates: There’s no map of the area affected by the flood.
If you are asking the reader to turn the page give them a graphic to tell the story more precisely.
From Donna Price: Missing: Exaclty WHERE to go online to see those flood plain and flood-prone areas.
From Joe Shaw: Neither the flood map nor, from what I can tell, an actual link to where to find it online.
From Chuck Hunt: The URL of the flood map or the maps themselves.
From Julie Holcombe: Map?
From Melanie Skillman: A map would be nice.
From Don Foy: Where’s the MAP?
You got it. Yay you!
