Three massive hurricanes have caused widespread damage and in some cases destruction. This post is just an update on the power outages from the three storms. Harvey hit the Texas coast on August 25 and 26 and produced heavy rains for several days after that. The total power outages were in the 300,000 to 400,000 customer range. Compare that with hurricane Ike in 2008 and that knocked out power to 2.2 million customers just in Texas.
At 7:47 AM, a 3.8 earthquake was reported near the Indiana-Illinois border not far from Albion. This is about 125 miles west of Louisville. We received numerous reports of the quake around the Louisville area. Many reports of furniture shaking. We also heard from Seymour, INElizabethtownLebanon, KY ...and many other locations in the WLKY viewing area just to name a few places. Some also heard the boom that goes along with some quakes.
The first day of fall is Friday, however the forecast is for very warm weather this week into the first few days of fall. Today (Monday) will be the 4th day in a row in the 80's after 10 days in a row when the temperature failed to reach 80 degrees. Temperatures will stay in the 80's for highs for the rest of the week. There are some changes on the way. The latest guidance shows a front arriving in about 10 days that will bring cooler weather.
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".
