For certain uses, you want the datacenter near the users. There are plenty of users in south east USA, but the whole area is at risk from hurricanes. So putting a datacenter there is a perfectly reasonable decision, balancing the risks and benefits.

Of course, for an organisation with multiple datacenters, designing your worldwide directory service to depend on any single datacenter is very silly.
