More than 292,000 customers in Lee and Collier counties were still without electrical service as of 6:30 a.m. Thursday. That’s a sharp decline from Wednesday, when more than 430,000 had no power. It means that steady progress continues to be made by Florida Power & Light and LCEC (Lee County Electric Cooperative) following Hurricane Irma. FPL had restored power to 129,980 of its 259,900 Lee County customers as of Thursday morning. In Collier, 77,930 of FPL's 210,700 customers have power.
More than 49 percent of Lee County’s 343 cell sites are out., according to a Federal Communications Commission report issued Tuesday. That's 170 out of 343 sites. It’s even worse in Collier County to the south, where more than 72 percent of its 212 cell sites are out of commission. Only Monroe and Hendry Counties have higher outage percentages at 82 and 78 percent, respectively. •Charlotte County has nearly 27 percent of its 33 sites inoperable.
Some resorts are ready to open as soon as power’s restored. Others will need more time, especially to deal with internet issues, toppled trees and other damage outdoors. Lee Visitor & Convention Bureau sent five teams out Wednesday, to assess the damage. The bureau aims to have a list of open hotels with room availability on its fortmyers-sanibel.com website shortly.
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".
