With all of the flooding Hurricane Irma brought, mosquito control teams are already working to reduce any risks. Chatham County Mosquito Control technicians are out checking places that regularly collect standing water. Mosquito Control Director Jeff Heusel says he doesn’t expect to see the mosquito explosion after Hurricane Irma like we saw after Matthew, and with an active West Nile virus season, crews are already spraying regularly.
One week after Hurricane Irma, Tybee Island residents are cleaning up and drying out. Most on hard-hit Lewis Avenue have more things piled in their front yards than inside of their homes. Residents don't know how long it'll take to get back to normal, but at least, one is staying in good spirits. The inside of Jill Ebrecht's Tybee Island home is now outside. Years of memories now piled in the front yard. "Very emotional because a great deal of my whole life is here, you know?
A Sunday morning fire in Pooler burned an old home that was recently purchased by the city. Pooler Fire Chief Wade Simmons said fire crews were dispatched around 4:30 a.m. to the home at the corner of Collins Street and Chestnut Street off of U.S. Highway 80. When firefighters arrived, Simmons said flames were coming out of the front windows and side of the house. Simmons said the fire started somewhere on the second floor, and burned for quite sometime in the floor before crews were dispatched.
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".
