distribution of population in Florida, Metropolitan areas in the state
are concentrated around the coast of the peninsula. They form a
continuous band on the east coast of Florida, stretching from the
Jacksonville MSA to the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach MSA,
including every county on the east coast, with the exceptions of
Monroe County. There is also a continuous band of MSAs on the west
coast of the peninsula from the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater MSA to
the Naples-Marco Island MSA, including all of the coastal counties from
Hernando County to
Collier County. The interior of the northern half of the peninsula
also has several MSAs, connecting the east and west coast MSAs. A few
MSAs are scattered across the Florida panhandle. The largest
metropolitan area in the state as well as the entire southeastern
United States is the
Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area,
with over five million people.

thunderstorms are common in most of the state from late spring until
