As Hurricane Maria whipped through the Dominican Republic Thursday it brought severe storm conditions to Punta Cana, a popular tourist destination on the easternmost tip of Hispaniola. Pictures out of Punta Cana revealed the flooding left behind by Maria in the aftermath of the storm. Maria brushed through the Dominican Republic as a Category 3 storm — downgraded from a Category 5 storm earlier in the week. The eye of the storm was about 40 to 90 miles from Punta Cana at its nearest point.
Hurricane Maria made its way to Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas Friday, lashing the islands with wind and rain as it passed near. The Category 3 storm remained about 30 miles east of Grand Turk island Thursday morning, moving at about 7 mph and packing winds of up to 125 mph, the National Hurricane Center said. “Maria’s eye will move near or just east of the Turks and Caicos Islands and the southeastern Bahamas today,” the National Hurricane Center warned Friday morning.
Hurricane Maria ripped through Puerto Rico Wednesday as a Category 4 storm, bringing torrential rain and winds of up to 155 mph. The storm left the entirety of the island – some 3.4 million people – without power, a situation officials said could last for several months. Maria swept through the island as the first Category 4 storm the region had experienced in 85 years. The extent of the damage on the island was still being surveyed.
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".
