As Hurricane Gert continues to churn, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) has three additional tropical disturbances to keep its eye on. Gert is moving northeast at around 21 mph and continues to be a category one hurricane with sustained winds of 90 mph. It has strengthened slightly over the last several hours, with a clear eye beginning to emerge. There are currently no coastal warnings or watches in effect, according to the NHC.
The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory from 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon to 7 p.m. Wednesday evening. The advisory is in effect for all of Beaufort and Jasper counties. The heat index is is expected to climb to between 108 and 113 on Wednesday afternoon, according to the advisory. The heat index will be similarly high on Thursday according to the NWS, and will climb above 100 each of the next seven days.
With the way the forecast is shaping up across South Carolina for the day of the eclipse, it might be wise to bring an umbrella, and lower expectations. The National Weather Service is expecting at least some clouds and the possibility of rain across the state. According to Michael Stroz, meteorologist with the NWS, partly cloudy conditions can include scattered cumulus clouds, high cirrus clouds, and overcast skies with cloud breaks. “It’s just a mix of sun and clouds,” said Stroz.
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".
