Harvey’s tally of destruction in the Houston region includes 11 dead, 50,000 rescued, and 500,000 cars waterlogged. "We've got probably 30,000 to 40,000 homes that have been destroyed," said Harris County Judge Ed Emmett. Damage estimates surpass $20 billion. We’ve already become jaded by local news video of old folks, babies and dogs being rescued from rising water. But on Wednesday afternoon, amid sunshine and blue skies, this nightmare isn’t over for many.
Texas sees plenty of big storms on the gulf. They just usually don't stick aroundIt became evident, late Saturday, to anyone with the habit of checking their radar app, that Houston was set to be on the receiving end of God’s own firehose. As the undercards of the Mayweather-MacGregor fight did their thing, Harvey’s ferocious rain bands set up to lash the Bayou City with 15 inches of rain.
"You are going to be in a stressful situation, I understand that," said Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner at a press conference Monday morning. The city has so far received more than 65,000 calls to 911; first responders have rescued thousands from flooded homes. The Coast Guard continues to pluck flood victims off roofs south of Houston. If folks are suffering only a couple inches of water in their house, they're likely better off coping with it until Harvey dies out.
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".
