Eclipse Numbers 2

As Audrey pointed out in her comment, the folks behind the Great American Eclipse website have crunched some numbers and posted their estimates as to visitations to various spots along the path of eclipse totality. The site estimates Illinois should see somewhere between 93,000 and 372,000 people. If those numbers prove accurate, then Carbondale should receive the lion's share of visitors as we are the largest city in the path once it moves beyond the East St. Louis and the one putting in the most effort, as far as I can tell, to attract visitors to our location.
