The devastation is coming to light today from Puerto Rico. It has been a very rough 24 hours for them. Parts of the Caribbean have also recently had widespread damage. The damage to the infrastructure to that entire region will likely last for years. This morning Maria was just northeast of the Dominican Republic. Maria On SatelliteThe eye of Maria had come back since yesterday. It was about 40 miles wide this morning. Though it was a little ragged.
The tropics are still busy, but at least we will have some quiet local weather for a while. As expected, Jose has moved away and high pressure is building in from the west. Regional Weather MapThis is going to give us lots of sunshine for today. It will warm up with this sunshine. Highs will rise to the upper 80s. It will also be humid. Winds will only be out of the northwest at 5-10mph. While Jose is far off, it will still have some lingering impacts on our region. One impact is tidal flooding.
Since yesterday there have been some interesting developments in the tropics. The good news is that Lee is gone. There is also some good news that Jose will definitely stay offshore. However, the bad news is that hurricane Maria turned into a cat 5 hurricane as it moved over parts of the Lesser Antilles, and now it is on a course for Puerto Rico. Tropical SatelliteI’ll get back to Maria in a moment. First let’s talk about Jose since it is closer.
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".
