BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - Higher water levels on the St. Johns River, which divides the Brevard and Orange County lines, are a welcomed sight for alligators and cattle, but it's bad news for thousands of fish, environmental experts say. "Everything that's white out here is a dead fish. You've got thousands of fish just right in this small area," said Derrick Lockhart, owner of Midway Airboat Rides. Out on the river on an airboat, Lockhart told News 6 Thursday that most of the fish are Tilapia.
COCOA, Fla. - In what could be a long process removing derelict vessels after Hurricane Irma, leaders of the effort say they're first trying to contact the boats' owners. "We're still getting a final count, but between 30 and 40 new boats (are) out in the river," Matt Culver, with Brevard County's Natural Resources Department told News 6. Culver, the Boating and Waterways Program cCoordinator, said Tuesday about 10 of those boats have already been removed by their owners.
PALM BAY, Fla. - At the Palm Bay Estates mobile home park off U.S. 1, a vacant lot has become the dumping ground for Hurricane Irma's destruction. The city of Palm Bay Monday began picking up the mess surrounding the residences of one of the hardest-hit parts in Central Florida. Irma spawned six tornadoes in Brevard County, one of which destroyed six mobile homes at the Palm Bay Estates.
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".
