Florida Keys residents are tough. That was the message Wednesday from U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) for Keys residents a week and a half after the landfall of Category 4 Hurricane Irma. The former Florida insurance commissioner said Monroe County’s approximately 75,000 residents, about 10,000 of whom are now reportedly without homes to live in, are going to need a lot of help.
A week and a day after Hurricane Irma cut a path through the Florida Keys as a massive and powerful Category 4 storm, Marathon residents gathered Monday night at the Marathon Community Park for a town-hall meeting to hear about recovery assistance. They were given the go-ahead to come back to the Middle Keys Saturday. People living in the rest of the Keys down to Key West began going home at daybreak Sunday.
At Monroe County’s largest publicly managed harbor, about one-third of the vessels are gone. Of the nearly 300 boats docked at the Boot Key Harbor City Marina in Marathon before the Sept. 10 landfall of Hurricane Irma, only a third remain in place and one person is missing. Sean Cannon, ports director at the marina at U.S. 1 and 35th Street, told Flkeynews.com Tuesday that one man who stayed on his boat during the storm has not been found and about 200 boats were lost or destroyed.
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".
