The only major U.S. city to be destroyed in this episode was Orlando since the beam cut thought the middle of the state. All other major cities such as Jacksonville, Melbourne, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami in the East and Ft. Myers, Sarasota, and Tampa in the west are all on the coastline and were untouched. See more
This might fit into the Geographic Error category, as well.
Tripp had stated in an earlier episode, that he was from Tarpon Springs, Florida. When the Xindi weapon cut the swath through Florida, it was from about where Orlando is, going south, toward the keys. The swath wasn't nearly wide enough to destroy Tarpon Springs, well to the west. See more
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III
I can't wait to get in there, Captain - find the people who did this. And tell me we won't be tiptoeing around. None of that non-interference crap T'Pol's always shoving down our throats. Maybe it's a good thing she's leaving.
Capt. Jonathan Archer
We'll do what we have to, Trip... Whatever it takes.
