Governor Charlie Baker was in Barnstable County Wednesday, the epicenter of power outages in the wake of the latest nor’easter to lash the state. More than 170,000 customers are without electricity across Massachusetts, including more than 128,000 in Barnstable. Baker met with regional officials and utility officials for a “roundtable discussion” about storm recovery efforts at 12:30 p.m. in the town of Barnstable.
The National Weather Service said Wednesday that the town of Sharon received 24 inches of snow, the city of Methuen collected 28.3 inches of the white stuff, and the city of Springfield scored a basketball field goal with just 2 inches of snow. But not one of the state’s 351 cities and towns matched Wilmington, the community with the most snow during Tuesday’s nor’easter that generated blizzard conditions in several municipalities, including Boston.
As the morning commute during Tuesday’s nor’easter got underway on area highways, State Police were on the scene of crashes south and north of Boston, leading to lane closures on Interstate 95 in Sharon and Interstate 495 in Andover. A tractor-trailer jackknifed on I-95 southbound near Exit 8 in Sharon, causing the closure of two left lanes, State Police tweeted around 6:15 a.m. It was not immediately known if there were any injuries in the crash.
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".
