MONTECITO, Calif. - Multiple CalTrans crews from out of the immediate area have come into Santa Barbara County to expedite repairs on storm damaged U.S. Highway 101 in Montecito and Santa Barbara. They are trying to meet a Monday goal announced earlier this week. In recent days much of the focus has been on a specific section where it crosses under Olive Mill Road. Some portions of freeway had eight feet of mud and clogged drains.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Crews blasting the asphalt with sprayers are removing mud from Coast Village Road after the recent storm disaster. Power sprayers were working in the 1200 block which was hit hard in front of businesses including CVS, Los Arroyos, Lucky's and the Montecito Inn. A date for the reopening of the street has not been announced. Seeing the aggressive work in this area is encouraging for those who are displaced.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A victim of the recent Montecito Mudflow has been remembered for her love of life, family and optimistic view of each day before her. Josie Gower lost her life January 9, when a violent flow of water, debris and rocks came crashing through her neighborhood in the early morning hours of a quick and powerful storm. The tragic event took 20 lives according to official records but it is said to be 23 by officials who say there will be no more survivors with three missing.
Traffic - NO ACCIDENTS but about a 10 mile Northbound (NB) back up showing from the Rincon/ Carpinteria to Santa Barbara. Some speeds below 10 mph. This is the disaster zone. Might be lookers. https://t.co/MJOJ26eOut
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
