SUFFOLK, Va. (WVEC) - All of Puerto Rico remains dark without power just hours after Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island as a Category 4 storm. Here in Hampton Roads, people have family on the island and are worried for their family. Elizabeth Williams-Rawlins lives in Suffolk and feels helpless. "There is no other place I would rather be. I want to go home," Williams-Rawlins said. "I can be so much more there than I can do here."
NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- The AIDAluna arrived at Norfolk's cruise ship terminal Thursday morning, a week ahead of schedule. The ship was originally scheduled to go from New York, to Florida, to the Caribbean, and then finally to Hampton Roads. But Hurricane Irma had other plans. Many passengers got off the ship with smiling faces, ready to explore. They had departed from New York City, and many said that was just too busy. They are excited to be in a smaller area like Hampton Roads.
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. (WVEC) – Marco’s Pizza is now open on Independence Boulevard. There are only a few across Hampton Roads, and soon there may be more. Andrew Schneider and Kevin Stansick own the franchise restaurant, and are both Navy veterans. Schneider explained, "Kevin was on his way to retiring, I was on my way to retiring. The Navy did a good job keeping us in the same place. We realized we had similar goals." Schneider said at 15, he started his first job at a Marco’s Pizza in Ohio.
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".
