SUNRISE, Fla. (CBSMiami) — Nearly two weeks since Hurricane Irma made landfall in South Florida, a lot of people are just now trying to figure out if, and how, they can get help from the federal government. There are 54 FEMA Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams in the state of Florida right now, including two in Broward County. On Thursday, county leaders tried to reassure residents that they can feel safe sharing their information with FEMA workers.
Monroe County officials say all residents and business owners of the lower keys will be allowed to return Sunday morning. However, they did have a warning for anyone coming back; the Keys are not as you left them when you evacuated. Residents will need to bring their own supplies and be self-sufficient. The roadblock at the southern end of Marathon, just before the 7-mile bridge, has been keeping residents out since last weekend when Irma thrashed the chain of islands.
KEY WEST (CBSMiami) — There’s power to about half the area as residents of the Lower Keys returned home Sunday for the first time since Irma hit a week prior. A boil water order and a plea from county leaders to be self-sufficient greeted them home. Life there now is not the life they left. “It’s good to be back on the island,” he said. “It’s still home.”About 30 miles north on Big Pine Key, residents were also allowed in for the first time Sunday.
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".
