We have recovered video footage from a memory card that was submerged in seawater for 10 months, from October 2016 to July 2017. Check out the video above to see the footage that was preserved, and to learn how it was possible. The card was in a GoPro camera. When found, the front of the camera housing was smashed in, meaning the memory card was exposed to the salty Gulf of Mexico waters for 262 days.
As soon as the rain quits lashing and the winds quit whipping, the sun comes out and there they are, thousands of creatures, great and small, that managed to survive the latest Gulf Coast hurricane. From bugs and fish to birds and gators, the local wildlife manages to endure the worst Mother Nature dishes out without the benefit of storm shelters or mandatory evacuations. And they've been doing it for millenia.
It's all about the wind. That's why we're seeing the footage of extreme low tides associated with Hurricane Irma. The same thing happened in Alabama's Mobile Bay during Hurricane Katrina. In fact, the same thing happens here and in most other parts of the Gulf coast on a regular basis. Strong winds, such as those associated with Irma, can override the effect of the tide. It doesn't take much.
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".
