The great-grandfather of two of the young children who died in a fire in southwestern Nova Scotia says his family has been touched by an outpouring of support from the community. Ervin Olsen's granddaughter escaped the burning house and her fiancé remains in hospital. Three of the children in the home were part of their blended family and another child was visiting. "My granddaughter basically walked out of the house into the hospital with her housecoat and her slippers — that's it.
Grief counsellors are offering support to children at a Nova Scotia elementary school today and investigators are beginning to examine the wreckage of a fatal house fire over the weekend that claimed the lives of four children on the province's southern tip. RCMP said forensic identification services are working with the medical examiner and the fire marshal to determine the cause of the fire near Pubnico, N.S., which started early Sunday morning.
People are bracing for damage after a powerful storm surge pummelled Nova Scotia's coastline at high tide Thursday night and high waves are expected to continue into Friday. Winds are expected to continue gusting from 70 to 110 km/h Friday morning, before easing slightly to the 30 to 60 km/h in the afternoon. Environment Canada continues to have storm surge warnings in effect from Shelburne County up to Guysborough County and along Cape Breton's eastern coast.
Last time I was at the ER with a friend w/o a family doctor, we were waiting on benches in the hall and told it was a bad day, but that every day was a bad day.

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".
