SANTA ROSA (KPIX 5) — A flash flood warning on Wednesday afternoon prompts fears of erosion in the burn zones of Santa Rosa’s Fountaingrove neighborhood. Both above ground, and below. There is an all-out effort to hold the ground in place in places burned by the fire and it is a race against the clock as rains move into Sonoma County.
PIEDMONT (KPIX 5) — Concerned homeowners in the East Bay are fighting to keep new cell towers away from their property. One is even moving. Among the new proposed cell tower locations is one on Wildwood Avenue in Piedmont. Peter Harvey, a scientist at NASA and UC Berkeley is one of hundreds of residents protesting the installation of Verizon cell towers in this community. “I wrote that I was very annoyed, very disappointed in city council,” he said.
SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — A Sonoma County man is making it his mission to remove cars burned in the wine country wildfires and get them to scrapyards. The reason: he doesn’t want people who have lost absolutely everything to pay anything to remove the burned-out hulks in front of their destroyed properties. There are 248 burned-out cars in the streets of the Coffey Park neighborhood in Santa Rosa. They sit in a jurisdictional no-man’s-land inside a neighborhood that is no longer habitable.
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".
