Unless robots start administering anesthesia, there will be a shortage of anesthesia providers for the next 25 - 40 years. As you may know, many CRNA programs are moving towards two more years of online/weekend classes and calling it a doctorate. The only thing this will do is prolong putting, much needed, anesthesia care providers into the clinical practice setting. As the AA schools build, we will begin to fill that need along with MDAs and CRNAs, but it will not fill up anytime soon. Houston will never be flooded, Atlanta will never be flooded, as well as most cities on the east coast. Charleston seems to be in a critical shortage right now. You should have no problem getting a job in GA.
