I'm seeing a "choose area" link just above the map pack on mobile. I don't recall seeing this or reading about it before, so perhaps it's new. The second image shows what you get once you click on it.

We've been seeing the same thing in various Florida cities during the past 2 weeks. It's not consistent in terms of which searches trigger it.
