Life interrupted in the Florida Keys by the onslaught of Category 4 Hurricane Irma apparently applies to the criminal element, too. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office daily jail-booking site is usually fairly populated but since the storm struck Sept. 9 into Sept. 10, few inmates have been booked into the Keys stockade. As of Wednesday, just three Irma-related arrests have taken place, each stemming from a violation of the county’s nighttime curfew.
First responder, utility lineman, supply truck driver, National Guard soldier, cop. If your job deals with Hurricane Irma and its aftermath, you’ve been working non-stop for nearly two weeks. “Twelve days ago,” Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Deputy David Brummer said when asked the last time he had a day off. Brummer was working in the hot afternoon sun, guarding a checkpoint at the entrance of Spanish Main Drive on Cudjoe Key. The road leads to the oceanfront Venture Out subdivision.
Village of Islamorada officials said Monroe County never consulted them before deciding to discontinue the mainland checkpoint in Florida City effective Tuesday, and that the decision makes the Upper Keys ripe for looting and traffic backups. “We weren’t consulted on this,” Islamorada Councilman Mike Forster said during a county conference call Tuesday with other local, state and federal officials.
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".
