Irma is finally starting to leave us alone. We’re down to a few clouds, a stray shower, and that’s about it. Now, we turn our eyes to the next storm – Hurricane Jose. We have good news when it comes to Jose. First of all, the storm is considerably weaker than the past few. Right now, it’s a category 1 storm, with 75mph winds. Hurricane force winds extend out 25 miles and tropical storm force winds go out 140 miles from the center of the storm.
We've had our eyes on Irma for over a week but there is actually another storm in the Atlantic. The name is Jose and it's a category 2 storm, with winds of 100 mph. We aren't currently as concerned with this storm as we have been with Irma, however, it bears watching over the next week. For now, the storm is out over the ocean and it will remain there for a while. The track is curling it around in a circle. It looks like the storm should weaken over the next 48 hours.
On the forecast track, the center of Irma should move near or over the southwest and west coast of the Florida Peninsula through the afternoon and evening hours on Sunday. Irma should then move inland over northern Florida and southwestern Georgia Monday afternoon. Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher gusts. Irma has downgraded to a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
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".
