The Atlantic Basin including the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico has returned to a quiet state, at least for the time being. Former Tropical Storm Don remains an open wave moving westward across the far-southern Caribbean toward Central America. The energy from this system will push ashore in Nicaragua or Costa Rica within the next 48 hours. Invest 96-L has been declassified. This means that it is no longer an ‘invest’.
The First Alert Forecast Team is tracking two areas in the Atlantic Basin. Former Tropical Storm Don has weakened and is now just an open tropical wave moving quickly-westward across the southern Caribbean. With dry air and some level of wind shear present, re-strengthening is not expected as of this forecast. Further north and east, Invest 96-L was located nearly 1,500 miles southeast of Puerto Rico early Wednesday morning.
Sunday and Monday have been declared First Alert Weather Days. By 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon there have already been reports of damage on Whitemarsh and Wilmington islands. Both islands have several reports of downed trees. On Wilmington Island there are reports of lights out on the backside of Johnny Mercer Boulevard at Bryan Wood Road. The Kroger on Johnny Mercer Boulevard is closed due to power being out. One viewer tells us the transformer near Kroger blew and was "sizzling and smoking."
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".
