CADDO PARISH-- - Governor Edwards asked all areas in the state to take precautionary measures against the storm. These sandbag locations have been open the past three days and they will remain open until the storm is no longer in Louisiana. Flooding is a major concern with Tropical Storm Cindy, but parish crews are also taking precautionary measures against wind damage. "We are also going to be out and have been out looking at possible tree removal, debris, whatever the case may be.
CADDO PARISH-- - When a tropical storm hits along I-220 and I-20, the rain affects the local drainage systems more than lakes, rivers, and bayous. The Red River drains from Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas, and Caddo Lake is affected mostly by rain in Texas. If this tropical storm hangs over us for a lengthy period of time and brings two to three inches of rain in an hour, that will cause flooding in low line areas in the city and parish.
SHREVEPORT-- - Governor John Bel Edwards says Tropical Storm Cindy should raise caution to every resident in Louisiana. "This is a system that will affect all of Louisiana. No one should be under the belief that this is only going to affect coastal Louisiana or southeast Louisiana," says Governor John Bel Edwards, State of Louisiana. Most of the injuries and deaths from recent floods in the state occurred when people tried to drive across flooded roadways.
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".
