As of 9 pm on Tuesday, Irma is a category 5 hurricane with max sustained winds of 185 mph, moving westward at 15mph. Irma is expected to remain a major hurricane again as it approaches Puerto Rico with dangerous winds, heavy rain, storm surge and rough surf are expected across the entire Caribbean.It is way too early to determine what direct impacts Irma may have on the US.
Tropical Storm Harvey has formed "again" in the Atlantic and this time he is heading towards Texas. The storm is currently over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, which is expected to provide a favorable low shear environment. This is good for tropical systems, which is why Harvey is expected to reach hurricane strength just before landfall. The lack of upper-level steering currents will also make Harvey a slow mover, which will increase the flooding risk around Texas and the surrounding areas.
For nearly 35 years, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has used the same color scale for severe weather outlooks. The standard colors for outlook risks were; Yellow for Slight, Red for Moderate & Magenta/Pink for High. These colors and their meanings won't change, but two additional outlook colors have been added. As of October 22nd, 2014, a Marginal and Enhanced Risk was added to SPC's outlook forecasts. This article will explain these outlooks along with the meaning of each risk.
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".
