Tropical Storm Irma was bad news for Hunting Island, still recovering from the impact of Hurricane Matthew in 2016. “Hunting Island took on a lot of water and likely will be closed for the rest of the calendar year,” wrote Dawn Dawson-House, director of corporate communications for the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism, in an email. “The campground probably will reopen at the first of the year.” Check back later for more information as we learn of it.
Before Tropical Storm Irma struck Hilton Head Monday, many residents had fled the island. But one visitor showed up to the island in spite of — really, because of — the storm. This visitor was red, weighed 13,000 pounds, and unlike residents who drove away in their cars, this particular visitor arrived by way of the Atlantic Ocean. The visitor was a U.S. Coast Guard buoy, lying sideways on a stretch of shore between South Forest and Coligny beaches.
Hunting Island State Park is “pretty much” underwater after Tropical Storm Irma rolled through Beaufort County on Monday and will likely be closed for the remainder of the calendar year. That’s according to Daniel Gambrell, the park’s manager, who said, in his opinion, the storm surge was higher than what he saw after October’s Hurricane Matthew. About a foot of water entered some of the facilities on the island during the storm, according to Gambrell.
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".
