New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu on Friday ordered an evacuation of several areas of the city, saying a mandatory curfew will go into effect before Tropical Storm Nate makes an expected landfall in the US as a likely Category 1 hurricane. "I encourage everyone to stay off streets starting tomorrow at 6 pm (23:00 UTC) and until we are clear on Sunday, so we can keep you safe," said Landrieu in a tweet.
US forecasters said on Saturday that Nate, a storm heading for the US Gulf coast, now had top winds of 121 kilometers (75 miles) per hour, making it just strong enough to be categorized as a Category One hurricane — the lowest-intensity grade on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu on Friday ordered an evacuation of several areas of the city, saying a mandatory curfew would go into effect before Hurricane Nate makes an expected landfall in the US.
US forecasters said Hurricane Nate is expected to strengthen into a Category 2 hurricane, packing winds of around 100 mph (160 kmph) when it slams into the central Gulf Coast Saturday night. The storm is gathering strength over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It's currently a Category 1 hurricane with 90 mph winds steadily increasing. That is the lowest-intensity grade on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale, but still capable of causing enormous damage.
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".
