North Carolina’s newest island had a short run. Shelly Island, the intriguing Outer Bank sandbar that began forming last fall, has connected to the tip of Hatteras Island’s Cape Point, WNCN reported. That, of course, could change with help from the same forces credited for the connection. Reports suggest the link is some of Hurricane Irma’s handiwork with some help from Hurricane Jose stirring in the Atlantic.
The latest Hurricane Jose forecast continues to show the storm moving up the East Coast, with potential impact in store for New England by the middle of next week. Meanwhile, out in the Atlantic, one of two other systems of interest has reached tropical storm strength. Tropical Storm Lee is located about 650 miles west-southwest of Africa’s Cape Verde with 40 mph winds. A forecast cone for Tropical Storm Lee as of 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017.
Hurricane Jose appeared in line for a mid-Atlantic funeral as it pulled a U-turn earlier this week, but forecasts over recent days have moved the storm farther west. The projected path as of Friday morning was closer to the East Coast than it was a few days ago – showing a chance Jose could glance the Outer Banks and have a more direct impact on points farther north.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
