- John Leavitt is a pilot with Angel Flight Southeast Space Coast. He's one of 45 pilots who activate after disasters, transporting supplies and rescuing people. On Thursday, he went to Key West, taking necessary supplies to folks stranded in their homes. "Twelve cases of water -- mostly Aquafina -- a couple cases of Gatorade, some cases of Powerade... anything we could think of that could be used and would be needed and would last a while."
- Raymond Faenza and his brother chose to ride out Hurricane Irma in their Mims' mobile homes. "Craziest night of my life, as far as danger goes, very dangerous," Raymond tells FOX 35, explaining the seconds after a tornado warning was issued in his area. "It just was very loud, like a big freight train or 10, and then it like lifted my building and then kinda dropped it down and by the grace of God, it still stands today." His brother wasn't as lucky.
- One person has died and another hospitalized following a lightning strike in Satellite Beach, Florida on Friday. The two men were transported to the hospital after the incident was reported to authorities by witnesses. It happened along the 300 to 500 block stretch of State Road A1A. "I heard lightning. It sounded like it was right there. The flash even came in the window, so I decided to look outside and see if I can see anything," said Patrick Collins, a visitor from Georgia.
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".
