We have been starting to see the impacts of Jose moving in and strengthening throughout the day (wind and rain) – and the wind will continue to strengthen overnight tonight. We’ve been saying it all along: It is certainly cause for pause when you hear “Hurricane Jose is coming” – which as of the 11pm update, Jose is now a tropical storm… no longer a hurricane.
This evening, a Tropical Storm Watch was issued for the East Coast from the Outer Banks of North Carolina, all the way up to the South Shore of Massachusetts. This WATCH means that we are “watching out for” the potential for tropical storm conditions with the close pass by of Jose. Tropical storm-force winds are sustained winds 39-73mph, with higher gusts. Jose is still a Cat 1 hurricane this evening with winds of 90mph (showing some strengthening throughout today).
Even though Hurricane Jose is some 900 miles away from Boston, we’re already feeling some of the force of this storm. A High Surf Advisory has been issued for the South Coast of New England through the day tomorrow – and I imagine will be extended as the storm continues to send some big swells in our direction… and move in our direction. Jose, currently a Cat 1, has made a slight turn this afternoon to crawl toward the north at about 6mph.
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".
