Repetitive Indexing for certain IDs

Hey,

 

Is there a way in Power BI to index a group of repetivie IDs?

 

For example, below is an illustarive dataset with Date, City, and State. I want to be able to index every time Florida (FL) appears, but if the earlier City was also in FL, then I don't want the index to change. I included a column with the desired outcome.

 

The reason I am asking this is because I want to be able to know if the location is currently in FL, and if it is in FL, how long it's been there. With the use of index, I can easily find the answer. If you think of a different solution, I would be more than happy to hear of an alternative answer rather than first indexing.

5/22/2019 7:06MiamiFL1

3/29/2019 2:28JacksonvilleFL1
2/23/2019 9:05AtlantaGA 
2/23/2019 9:05Los AngelesCA 
2/20/2019 2:56MiamiFL2
11/20/2018 9:54St. LouisMO 
11/19/2018 6:10Los AngelesCA 
8/21/2018 4:13OrlandoFL3

Thank you!
