Is there a typo for MSA 3290? Morgantown, NC, versus Morganton, NC

Morgantown, NC, and Hickory, NC, are very far from one another. However, Hickory is closely neighbored with Morganton, NC. Is this a typo? Using FHFA house price data, they list MSA 25860 as "Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton, NC".

This looks like a typo. Morgantown, NC looks like a very small "neighborhood" while Morganton, NC is a city. These changes have been made and should be reflected in the next data release.
