The top commander overseeing the U.S. military's response in storm-ravaged Puerto Rico says relief efforts are shifting from a crisis phase to one of recovery as federal troops prepare to leave the island. Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, the Pentagon's liaison to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), announced on Friday that troops would begin winding down operations, six weeks after Hurricane Maria wiped out power across Puerto Rico and devastated the island's infrastructure.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- The north side of Puerto Rico, including San Juan, was plunged back into darkness Thursday when a major power line shut down. The setback comes as FEMA is offering to fly thousands of storm victims to the U.S. mainland. Six weeks after Hurricane Maria hit, 2,200 residents are still living in shelters. Elsie Ortiz has been sleeping on a cot in a gymnasium for 41 days. "It's very sad seeing the way I am so helpless," the 74-year-old said. "It's hard, but we make the best of it.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- One week after Hurricane Maria invaded Puerto Rico, frustration is growing as relief supplies are arriving on the island, but getting them to the nearly 3.5 million people in desperate need is close to impossible. Power is still out, and the FCC said Wednesday more than 91 percent of cellphone sites are out of service. Puerto Rico's governor told CBS News that food, water and medicine were just sitting at the port waiting to be delivered.

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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
