FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – FEMA has frozen Hurricane Matthew relief funding, which will impact the rebuilding of towns and counties across North Carolina. Hurricane Matthew damaged hundreds of North Carolina roads, including Mirror Lake Drive in Fayetteville. Larry and Tonya Krieger have lived in the area for decades, and now nearly a year with “road closed” signs in their neighborhood. “(It’s a) major inconvenience because in this neighborhood there’s probably 400-500 houses,” Larry Krieger said.
CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) — Johnston County law enforcement are remembering the life of one of their own. Clayton police officer Monica Carey was killed Sept. 14, 2001. A memorial now sits in the parking lot where an undercover drug buy was expected to happen. Police said the suspected dealer ran over Carey with his car. Officers would later shoot and kill the suspect. One thousand dollars worth of heroin was found in his car, according to Clayton police.
MORRISVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — For the first time since Hurricane Irma hit, some people are finally able to get back to Florida. Airports throughout the state closed ahead of the storm, but now flights are finally starting to take off again. At Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Wednesday morning, travelers were seen checking in for a 7:15 a.m. flight to Miami. Wednesday is just the second day planes can get to south Florida after Irma hit.
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".
