Fall is going to feel a lot like summer in the Lowcountry today with hot, humid conditions and little chance of rain. The National Weather Service reports that, with an expected high temperature in the 90s and a 60-70 percent dew point, it could feel like it’s near 100 degrees in Beaufort County. The normal high is 81 degrees. Storm surge warnings and watches remain in effect for parts of the North Carolina coast related to Tropical Storm Maria, which weakened overnight.
With many in Puerto Rico waiting for help in the wake of Hurricane Maria’s devastation, Savannah has become a key part of staging for relief. The Savannah Air National Guard Base, located at Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, is being used to store food and water, as well as being a home for personnel and aircraft ahead of humanitarian missions, reported the Savannah Morning News.
With a string of beautiful days and no threat of a storm looming, Lowcountry residents may be tempted to think hurricane season is over. Enjoy it while it lasts, meteorologists say. Tuesday’s high is expected to be 88 degrees under sunny to partly cloudy skies. Humidity is high, but the chance of rain doesn’t start to grow until later in the week. The lull in hurricane activity this time of year is typical, Accuweather reports. Hurricane season doesn’t end until Nov. 30.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
