It's hard to imagine, but one family lived through Hurricane Harvey in Houston, only to fly to the British Virgin Islands a few days later and experience Hurricane Irma's wrath. Today, the Salem family says they’re lucky to be alive. The images are breathtaking. Tortola in the British Virgin Islands is decimated. “It’s basically like a dead town. There’s not one tree in sight, not one tree,” Leena Salem told FOX 8 via telephone.

FOX 8 spoke to one Slidell native, living in Key Largo, Florida, who says he fears the storm will decimate the area. Hours before Irma is expected to hit Key Largo and the heavy rain is already falling, with whipping winds. While most residents have left due to a mandatory evacuation, others chose to stay behind.
The body of a NOFD Firefighter killed by a stray bullet in Memphis over the weekend returned home to New Orleans Wednesday morning. Fellow firefighters gathered at Boyd Funeral Home in Gentilly to receive the body of 37-year-old Gregory Howard Sr., saluting as his casket was carried inside. Howard was killed last Saturday outside of a Memphis nightclub. Firefighters today stood at attention as his body was carried into the funeral home after a procession from Louis Armstrong Airport.
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".
