Hurricane Irma is creating a historic level of storm surge in Jacksonville, which may cause four to five feet of flooding in the city's downtown later this morning or early this afternoon, the National Weather Service warned Monday morning. Currently, gauges at the St. Johns River are reading nearly 4.5 feet — the highest level ever recorded in downtown Jacksonville, according to the Weather Service.
As day breaks, Hurricane Irma's impact being seen across Tampa BayA tree and road sign are down in front of the Starbucks at Park Boulevard N and Seminole Boulevard. [KATHRYN VARN | Times]As dawn broke over Tampa Bay on Monday morning, the devastation that Hurricane Irma brought to the region was beginning to come into focus. Search and rescue crews will be out in the morning to assess the damage, but early on, reports of fallen trees and other impacts filtered in through social media.
Pinellas County remained sealed off from the rest of Florida at 6 a.m. Monday as Hurricane Irma made her trek north. Sheriff's deputies warned citizens to stay off all county roads because of hazardous conditions, including traffic light outages, downed powerlines and significant debris blocking roadways. All access to the county is restricted until deputies finish a complete assessment of damage and safety. The barrier islands also remain closed.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
